This week I was very pleased to kick off the second season of Providence's $40 million road improvement project with the pouring of fresh pavement in Providence’s Wayland Square neighborhood.

Providence's voters overwhelmingly approved our road bond in 2012, and last spring we kicked off the first year of road repairs on the Southside. Roads were selected for repair using a merit-based analysis created by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

We covered a lot of ground last year and anticipate another productive season of road repairs. Thirty two miles of roads were completed in 2013, and the project will ultimately repave and repair an estimated one out of every six roads in Providence.

Infrastructure improvements are long-term investments in jobs and infrastructure that immediately improve the quality of life in our capital city.
