RIDOT Marks a Banner Year for Projects, Truck Tolling Plan

WPRI reports, “The Rhode Island Department of Transportation is making good on a promise earlier this year to rebuild itself from the inside out, the department said [on November 17] — as the department has also been pushing itself into high gear on improving roads. As director Peter Alviti noted in a quarterly report ending September 30, the DOT put $174 million worth of contracts out for bid during the 2016 federal fiscal year, $60 million more than the previous year.” The agency is also touting its memoranda of understanding with federal highway officials on the RhodeWorks truck toll program.
