Senior Deputy Majority Leader Nicholas J. Narducci Jr. (Ward 4) today was on site where work is nearing completion on the Hawkins Street Bridge Restoration Project.
Hawkins Street Bridge was closed to traffic in October of 2017 after the Rhode Island Department of Transportation found significant deterioration on several of the support beams.
Councilman Narducci has been monitoring the process and has been in contact with RIDT regarding the final phase of the restoration. “Today marks another step closer to restoring this bridge so that the community is no longer divided. When the bridge is opened you can expect a ribbon-cutting, our neighborhood deserves it,” stated Councilman Nicholas J. Narducci Jr.
A completion date has not yet been set, but the engineers and contractors from the Rhode Island Department of Transportation believe it to be in the very near future.
