PROVIDENCE, RI – Starting today residents of Providence can view the list of planned street improvements in the capital city. Voters will decide on November 6, 2012 whether or not to approve the $40 million roads bond to fund these improvements. The list of planned street improvements and accompanying maps can be viewed at www.Providenceri.com/roadbond.
In addition, the Office of Mayor Angel Taveras will hold informational meetings throughout the city in the coming weeks to explain the scientific, merit-based process that was used to identify roads for repair and to explain how the bond will work if voters approve the measure.
Starting next week, officials from the city’s Finance Department and the Department of Public Works will conduct a series of information sessions to explain and answer questions about the process used to identify road repairs and how the bond will work if voters approve the measure.
