Plans are proceeding for a multi-story apartment building by Canal Street downtown that would be built on land by Providence Station and across from the Roger Williams National Memorial, according to documents filed with the city’s planning department.
The developer, Capital Cove Development LLC, has applied to the Building Board of Review Review for a variance to allow construction. The application describes the planned structure as six stories high, with the first two floors used as parking, with 169 spaces.
A 30-year-old Cumberland woman on her way to work Wednesday morning was killed when a bus struck her in a crosswalk in Kennedy Plaza and dragged her 50 to 60 feet.
Providence police identified the victim as Michelle Cagnon. She worked for Bank of America, according to company spokesman Trevor Koenig.
She was walking east on Washington Street, in front of the Alex and Ani City Center ice skating rink, when she stepped into the crosswalk to cross East Approach a little after 8 a.m., according to Public Safety Commissioner Steven M. Paré.
“Lady was in the crosswalk,” said witness Charles Parker, “looked up, screamed as she got run over.”
“The minute she got into the middle of the crosswalk, Peter Pan came around and just hit her,” said another witness, Michael “Casey” Lee, of Dartmouth, Mass. “All you heard was the smack, and that was it.”
This is so awful.
The Peter Pan buses often move too fast and too recklessly through the plaza, I don’t understand why. One almost hit me the other day as it swung out of the berth at the Transit Center, across the 3 lanes of traffic on Washington Street, and up onto the East Approach. I was crossing East Approach on foot and had to step back onto the curb to avoid it.
Press Release from Fix the 6-10
Fix the 6-10 believes that it is urgent for Rhode Island to replace the 1950’s-style 6-10 Connector with infrastructure more appropriate for a 21st-century city, balancing the needs of people driving with creating economic opportunities, connecting neighborhoods, and improving our state’s fiscal health.
In response to recent efforts by the City and State to repair the failing 6-10 Connector, a new grassroots coalition, Fix the 6-10, has formed to advocate for a cost-effective, sustainable, equitable, and innovative replacement.
The Route 6-10 Connector is broken. Every day, thousands of people drive over structurally deficient bridges held up by wooden braces. Congestion plagues the off-ramps. It separates neighbors and blocks economic opportunity. It’s time to Fix the 6-10.
Recent estimates by the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) have placed the cost of an expensive, heavily engineered hybrid tunnel-highway at nearly $595 million dollars, not counting a bus rapid transit line with stations, making it one of the most expensive highway interchanges in the world.
From the City of Providence Department of Planning and Development:
My vision for the 6-10 Connector is…
Please join us on Tuesday, August 30th for a Public Workshop to discuss your ideas for the 6-10 Connector.
The City of Providence is launching a public process to bring community members and decision-makers together to craft a design proposal for the 6-10 Connector, a portion of state highway that runs through numerous Providence neighborhoods including Olneyville, West End, Federal Hill, Silver Lake, Hartford, Valley, and Smith Hill.
Humans are smart, but we’re also squishy, vulnerable, and prone to putting ourselves in heavy, explosion-powered machines that roll along the ground in excess of 70 miles per hour. In 2014, there were 32,674 car accident-related fatalities in the US alone. So what would happen if humans evolved specifically to survive an auto crash?

The fate of a long-delayed pedestrian bridge across the Providence River is back on track, after a flurry in recent weeks of negotiations, meetings and budget deliberations.
Dozens of Amtrak and commuter trains pass through the two forlorn Rhode Island mill cities of Central Falls and Pawtucket, every day without stopping.
Street abandonment, RISD Institutional Master Plan update, parking, and more on the agenda for the the August 16th City Plan Commission meeting.

A long-discussed plan to expand passenger rail service to Pawtucket and Central Falls got a boost on Wednesday from a $13.1 million federal TIGER grant which will help build a new commuter rail station here, something the mayor of Pawtucket called a “game changer.”
Amy Almanzar, 33, of Warwick, was driving on King Street and made a right turn onto Main Street just before 1 a.m., when she heard a “thumping noise,” and saw people wave at her, Fague said.
The Providence Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission Meeting, Wednesday, July 20, 2016.
Several important buildings in Providence receive historic tax credits for renovations.
As RIDOT learns it did not receive a crucial Federal grant, the City of Providence plans alternate designs for the 6/10 Connector.
On Tuesday, Warwick police announced the charges had been amended due to the seriousness of the injuries suffered by the officer.
