Woonsocket Updated Schedule for Road

Repairs to Include the East Woonsocket, North

End, Constitution Hill and Cato Hill Districts

 

WOONSOCKET, R.I.: Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt today detailed updates to road reconstruction that will occur in the East Woonsocket, North End, Constitution Hill and Cato Hill Districts, starting Monday, July 26th. Roads are being repaired in these districts under the direction of the Woonsocket Department of Public Works after recent gas main upgrades by National Grid Gas Company.

Mayor Baldelli-Hunt stated, "We have collaborated with National Grid to implement an aggressive road repair schedule, according to our high-quality standards, soon after they complete their necessary gas main enhancements. This collaboration, in conjunction with our own Department of Public Works road reconstruction program allows for upgrades to our gas mains and our roadways. This has proven to be a winning combination!"

Public Works Director Steve DAgostino stated, "We work closely with National Grid after they do their gas main upgrades so the roads they repair meet our specifications."

"Special thanks to Mike, Tim, Scott and Jonathan in our Engineering Department who oversee these operations," added Mayor Baldelli-Hunt.

A key FDA advisory panel is weighing whether to recommend approval of Pfizer COVID booster shots. An all-day hearing is underway and a recommendation from the independent panel is expected later today. There is a controversy over whether COVID boosters are needed.       Supporters of far-right figures and extremist groups are being told to stay away from tomorrow's rally in Washington in support of Capitol riot suspects. They say the "Justice for J6" protest rally is a trap set up by the federal government. Local and federal law enforcement agencies say they don't expect more than 700 people to attend.        A Fox News drone is out of the sky after being grounded by the Federal Aviation Administration. It was shooting video of thousands of migrants sheltering under a bridge along the border with Mexico. The FAA has put a two-week flight restriction in place over Del Rio, Texas for "special security reasons."        Gas prices are climbing to their highest level in seven years. Today's Triple-A national survey finds the average price of regular is up three-tenths of a cent, to three-19-point-four a gallon. That's a cent and-a-half higher than one week ago and more than a penny a gallon up from the average a month ago.        The search for a missing Florida woman is taking shape in a community in Wyoming. Park Rangers are starting a ground search in Jackson Hole for 22-year-old Gabby Petito who was last seen nearby at Grand Teton National Park in late August. She'd been on a cross country road trip with her fianc before being reported missing earlier this month.        Plans are in the works to remove the third murder hornet nest found this year in the Pacific Northwest. It's a more difficult job because it's located 20 feet up in a tree, and Washington Department of Agriculture officials say they need special equipment to reach it. There's word that there might also be a fourth nest.
