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.

The 6-10 Connector and portions of routes 6 and 10 are currently in disrepair and will soon be replaced. Over the coming months, the City will engage the neighborhoods impacted by this project in a meaningful public process that will result in a design proposal to improve this section of infrastructure while also enhancing alternative modes of transportation, repairing connections between the neighborhoods along the corridor, reducing long-term maintenance costs, alleviating traffic congestion, and reclaiming excess highway land to create redevelopment opportunities and maximaize economic development.

The City’s design process kicks off with a public workshop on Tuesday, August 30, 6:00 – 8:30 PM at the Asa Messer School (1655 Westminster Street).
