Year In Review

The Year of Detours

2013's city construction


Okay, so seeing a plethora of orange cones, potholes and “keep out” signs isn’t so strange for the Ocean State. However, add in a few key neighborhoods where the residents have a lot of civic pride and aren’t afraid to use their voice, and you have the perfect storm of disgruntled citizens.

Hope Street
Oy vey! The hope street Merchant’s Association’s pants were “metaphorically ankled” all summer.

North Main Street
Rhode Island summer construction at its best. it’s now fall construction, maybe even winter construction?

Davey Lopes Recreation Center Pool
Can’t the kids learn to swim in the Bay? Just dodge the barges, sunken ships and toxic runoff.
