RI Coastal Resources Management Council preserve, protect, develop, and restore coastal resources for all Rhode Islanders

Regarding the Washington Bridge reconstruction

As the bridge and its footings are within R.I. Coastal Resources Management Council jurisdiction, the CRMC and R.I. Department of Transportation are working together toward a solution that satisfies the requirements of the Rhode Island Coastal Program and meets the needs for reliable and safe transport from Providence to the East Bay.

RIDOT will be applying to the CRMC to dismantle the compromised Washington Bridge and construct the new bridge over tidal waters. CRMC permit staff have met with DOT personnel to discuss preliminary plans and will continue to facilitate and assist in this process while ensuring the protection of the State’s coastal resources.
