Mayor Announces Sidewalk Repairs in Market Square Area

 

WOONSOCKET, R.I. :  Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt announced today that within the next week, the Highway Division, along with RICON Construction, will begin work on replacing some damaged sidewalk and curbing along the South Main Street Bridge in front of the Woonsocket Falls Dam at Market Square.

 

“From paving roads to now repairing hazardous sidewalks, Director Steven D’Agostino and the workers in the Highway Division have continued to work tirelessly to improve the City’s infrastructure and make the City safer for our residents and attractive to businesses,” said Mayor Baldelli-Hunt.

 

Director D’Agostino said, “The public should expect some minor traffic delays in and around the area of construction,” but assured residents that “the minor inconvenience will be outweighed by the improvement in safety and beautification of the area around treasured Woonsocket Falls Dam.”

 

For any questions regarding this project, residents can call Michael Debroisse in the Engineering Department at 401-767-9216.

The Trump administration is working toward reuniting children with their migrant parents. The administration says it has returned 364 children of the over 25-hundred who were separate from their parents, according to a court filing. Over 16-hundred parents are reportedly eligible to have their children returned.        President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will soon meet again. The White House has confirmed that Trump told National Security Adviser John Bolton to invite Putin to Washington in the fall. While in Helsinki, Trump had agreed to ongoing working level dialogue between the two security council staffs.        The Senate is unanimously voting to block any possibility of allowing foreign governments to question U.S. officials. A non-binding resolution passed with a unanimous vote today. The move comes after possibility that President Trump may allow Russian officials to question a former U.S. ambassador and other Americans.        Conservationists are opposing a Trump administration proposal, fearing it may strip key provisions from the Endangered Species Act. Officials say the change in the text would strip protections from species that are deemed merely "threatened" rather than "endangered." Also at issue is a proposal to strike language guiding officials to ignore economic consequences in favor of wildlife.       Kevin Kisner [[ KIZZ-ner ]] is leading after the first day of The Open Championship. The American carded a five-under 66 in Thursday's first round at Carnoustie Golf Links. Erik van Rooyen, Tony Finau [[ FEE-now ]] and Zander Lombard are all one shot back in second.
