Here is the latest correspondence I’ve received from RIDOT concerning keeping the Washington Bridge open during construction. While RIDOT is certainly due credit for completing the projects that they highlighted, I think it’s hard for them to argue that a fair share of State transportation dollars are being spent on non-automobile projects. I was very interested to see that they completed a traffic count on the bridge. This is something we spoke about doing internally in the next month or so and I’ll see what I can do to get my hands on the raw data.
In the mean time, I plan to reply to this letter, but would like to hear your thoughts. So let’s have them, where did RIDOT score points with you and where did they miss the point?
