Providence restarts repaving, goal of 1 in 6 streets done by 2015

Posted 4/16/14

PROVIDENCE – The city has started the second year of work in its $40 million road resurfacing project.

Funded with a voter-approved bond in 2012, the road project completed 32 miles of repaving last year and began this year’s work Wednesday on Moses Brown Street in the Wayland Square neighborhood. Ultimately the city intends to repave one of every six streets in Providence by 2015.

“We covered a lot of ground last year and anticipate another productive season of road repairs,” Mayor Angel Taveras said in a news release. “The Providence Road Improvement project is a long-term investment in jobs and infrastructure, and is immediately improving the quality of life in Rhode Island’s capital city.”

A map of streets already repaved and which are next can be found at data.providenceri.gov.
