According to a statement released by the office of Senator Jack Reed (D.), the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) will receive a $20 million grant to help pay for the repair and replacement of bridges along Rte. 37.
The total cost of the repair and replacement project to improve bridges, roads, and culverts along the corridor is estimated at $76 million.
The Rte. 37 project also will involved changes to the route’s westbound Exit 3 off-ramp, in order to improve mobility and safety.
