The state and city released their report today on the redevelopment of the land which will be freed up by the removal of Route 195.
- RI I-195 Relocation Surplus Land: Redevelopment and Marketing Analysis (50 MB)
- The report is also available on the RIDOT website.
The 169 page report reviews the land parcel by parcel. I have not had a chance to go through it so I will not be doing any commentary at this point.
Providence Business News has a story on the report where they state, “[the report] recommends encouraging a mix of public space, commercial development, residential buildings and an expansion of the Brown University and Johnson & Wales University campuses.”
As I find time to delve through the report, I’m sure I’ll have more to say about it. Feel free to post your thoughts here as you take the opportunity to read through it.
Also, RIDOT now has a webpage on the proposed streets with plans for download.
This is the fourth of a series of posts we will be doing about the 195 Street Grid. To view all the posts and more information, please visit our 195 Relocation Project page.
