State Transportation Improvement Program Project
The State of Rhode Island Department of Transportation has allocated $11.5 million to improve Broad Street in Pawtucket, Central Falls and Cumberland, RI.
The projects include:
- Resurfacing the entire length of road through Central Falls and Cumberland. (The road in Pawtucket has already been resurfaced.)
- The bridges over the railroad tracks and over the Blackstone River will be rebuilt.
- Streetscape improvements, including sidewalks, crosswalks, trees and plantings, street lights, traffic lights, parking, and more. Exact locations are yet to be determined, based on public input.
Broad Street Survey
The Broad Street Committee is currently developing a survey in order to identify improvements needed in specific locations along the street and assess the public’s priorities for the project. The survey will be available online and will also be conducted in person along Broad Street this summer.
Business Resource Connection
The Broad Street Committee is currently compiling resources available to local businesses.
