Frymaster over at The Bucket Blog has the scoop about last night’s meeting regarding the Route 95 Pawtucket River Bridge. I meant to post about this meeting, but neglected to get to it, sorry. You may recall, the Pawtucket River Bridge was recently put on a 22-ton weight limit with trucks encourage to detour around via Routes 146 or 295, or as a last resort, a detour over the Division Street Bridge in Pawtucket.

You can read the details of tonight’s meeting over at The Bucket Blog, but the gist is that RIDOT is taking this seriously and moving fast to get a replacement in place.
