PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Road repairs and revitalization over the past dozen years in Providence are nearing completion.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1FUOsGx ) the third and final phase of the $15 million “Downtown Circulator Project” is expected to be completed before the winter. Officials say paving and landscaping may be necessary next spring.

The project’s last phase involves the reconfiguration of LaSalle Square and Emmett Square, including the creation of two-way streets replacing one-way streets. Bonnie Nickerson, director of the Department of Planning and Development, says the project is financed by a bond issue dating to the early 2000s.

Public Works Department officials say a $40 million project improving roads throughout the city is also nearly finished. That project, started in 2013, will have repaired 65 miles of streets by next spring.
