RIBTA Brings Back Snooper Trucks and Considers Hiring a Vendor to Investigate August Accident

Providence Journal reports that RITBA has resumed using its own Under Bridge Inspection Vehicle (known as a UBI, or “Snooper”) after a safety review. On August 29, a UBI leased and used by a RITBA contractor tipped over and stranded two workers who were inspecting the Sakonnet River Bridge.

The RITBA board announced that it will hold a special meeting this morning (September 13) to consider engaging a vendor to investigate the August 29 incident.
