Public Workshop: 6-10 Connector

  • Asa Messer School 1655 Westminster Street Providence, RI, 02909 United States (map)

The 6-10 Connector is a highway that abuts and affects your community. Share your vision for its future with City officials.

From the Providence Planning & Development website:

The City of Providence is launching a public process to bring community members and decision-makers together to craft a design proposal for the 6-10 Connector, a portion of state highway that bifurcates numerous Providence neighborhoods including Olneyville, West End, Federal Hill, Silver Lake, Hartford, Valley, and Smith Hill.

The 6-10 Connector and portions of routes 6 and 10 are currently in disrepair and will soon be replaced. Through the summer and fall of 2016, the City will engage the neighborhoods impacted by this project in a meaningful public process that will result in a design proposal to improve this section of infrastructure while also enhancing alternative modes of transportation, repairing connections between the neighborhoods along the corridor, reducing long-term maintenance costs, alleviating traffic congestion, and reclaiming excess highway land to create redevelopment opportunities.

Visit the city planning website for more details and to sign up for their 6-10 Connector e-mail list.
