RI Progressive Democrats Push to Reopen Truck Toll Plan. 6/10 Connector Plan at Issue.

Providence Journal publishes an op-ed by Sam Bell, state coordinator of the Rhode Island Progressive Democrats, who contends, “When the General Assembly approved RhodeWorks, it was on the understanding that [Providence’s Route 6/10 Connector] would not be rebuilt as is. Now that we know that this will not happen, it is time to reopen the RhodeWorks debate. [Link added.] The General Assembly should not allow [Governor Gina] Raimondo and RIDOT to waste vast quantities of public money on a quest to avoid fixing Providence’s highway infrastructure problems.”
