    "Making RI a truly great bicycling state"? Tackle so called road improvement that eliminate cycling: a) huge detours caused by airports, highways and railroads, b) lack of bike lanes or decently wide shoulders, c) lack of major bridge access (contrast new Brightman Bridge in Fall River), d) turning lanes at intersections that steal shoulders, e) mentalities of bike zealots and pro-car monsters who claim streets are fine as is.

    Why is it that roads that straddle state or town lines are left unmaintained? Can hardly read welcome signs for bone-jarring bumps and potholes avoidance.

    From Angell or Canal Streets used cross Memorial Square alongside old Post Office and sneak through Burnside Park on way to Washington Street. No more. Fenced off. Not going to deter protest squatters, but does average citizens and cyclists who fondly remember lingering therein. It's a public PARK after all. There's really no bike infrastructure on this transit, although once on Providence Plan.
