One Response to Providence Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Commission Meeting – January 17, 2018

    Since this is also a “pedestrian” committee, I suggest an assessment as to how well sidewalks have been cleared, including on the I-95 overpasses. If there is a problem, perhaps it can be brought up at the Traffic Safety Coalition meeting next week.
