    I would be surprised if they can do crack sealing with the amount of debris on the path right now.

    I'd agree with that, but unless RIDOT has an automated posting service, they also released a press release and more specific timetable on their own site. http://www.ri.gov/DOT/press/view.php?id=14616

    Perhaps one hand doesn't know what the other is doing? More power to them if they are forging ahead with this, even though other organizations in the state are crazy busy. I would have thought though that RIDOT trucks would be pulled into service for other jobs during the cleanup.
