UPDATE: Due to rain, the crack sealing has been moved back a few days. The updated announcement from RIDOT:
RIDOT is scheduled to conduct crack sealing operations on the East Bay Bike Path from 7 p.m. on Sunday, May 6, 2012 until 6 a.m. on Monday, May 7th. The area to be sealed is from Riverside Square in East Providence to Thames Street in Bristol. Cyclists and other path users should avoid the bikeway during this important operation which will improve the riding surface and prevent further cracking. The schedule is weather-dependent and subject to change.
A big thanks to RIDOT for scheduling this during the evening, so they minimize any impact on commuters. Enjoy the fresh pavement on Monday!
