After nearly a year RIDOT and the City of Providence have begun design work
Councilman Nicholas J. Narducci Jr. today announces that work has begun on a project to replace the Hawkins Street Bridge. After nearly a year of waiting, RIDOT and the City have come to terms on a design and have begun the preliminary phase of work.
“The bridge was closed last October and has created a great deal of consternation in the neighborhood,” stated Senior Deputy Majority Leader Nicholas J. Narducci Jr. “For the past year, I have been working with City and State officials to get this project underway. By joining forces, the City and State, have allocated funds for this important project. Infrastructure is an issue not just in Providence or Rhode Island, but around the country. This work beginning is a testament that with hard work by community advocates we can move the needle to get things done.”
Hawkins Street Bridge crosses the West River and Route 146 connecting the Wanskuck and Charles neighborhoods of Providence.
