Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza, seen here sporting the new RI Bike logo, officially opened the South Water Street Urban Trail yesterday with a celebratory ribbon cutting. The South Water Street trail is just the latest segment of Providence’s Great Streets Initiative and has transformed the route into a complete street with space and safety for all road users.
The Great Streets Plan aims to reconnect neighborhoods with a network of trails and neighborhood greenways that provide comfortable and safe passage for all road users, without regard for the mode of travel. Once complete, Providence will have a modern, multi-modal transportation system that offers real choices to residents. You can read more about this important work here.
