Today, Senators Sheldon Whitehouse and Jack Reed will speak at the launch of a new multi-year project with Clean Ocean Access and 11th Hour Racing. The innovative project aims to address plastic pollution and marine debris in Rhode Island by inspiring long-lasting environmentally responsible behavior that is necessary to protect and improve ocean health.
Here’s what’s happening, new, and to do out there today.
The addition of $20 million in federal grant money secured by Senator Jack Reed will enable the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) to accelerate work associated with the Pell Bridge Ramp Project – including adding more roadwork connecting to this important interchange and gateway to Newport.
