Should Rhode Island expand its deepwater ports?


By PBN Staff

Gov. Donald L. Carcieri won his first election campaigning, in large measure, on a promise to stop the creation of a container port at Quonset Point in North Kingstown.

Now, the success of automobile shipping activity in the Quonset Business Park and the poor economic performance of the state in general have many business people and politicians calling for a new look at expansion of shipping there as well as in Providence.

The question is not only whether the people of Rhode Island want more shipping, but if so, then where do they want it to take place?
