  • Hey Jef,

    Where does all the landfill and material waste from projects like the 195 relocation go to? I recall something in the Journal about it going to East Providence a while back. Just curious.

  • Do you suppose the old beams from the 195 overpass could be donated to the Steel Yard, or melted down & recycled for other future projects?

  • My understanding is fill is going to East Providence to cap a landfill there.

    I doubt the steel would be given to anyone, it is a valuable recyclable. Though it would be cool to get a piece of public art out of the old highway. I believe some granite and/or crushed concrete will be used in the construction of the riverside parks.
