This letter was addressed to Michael Lewis, executive director of the R.I Department of Transportation (RIDOT); and Robert Smith, chief engineer at RIDOT.
To the editor:
Please allow me to be quite brief and quite blunt.
In the name of common human decency, I ask that you do everything within the
full legal limit of your power to modify the Bristol Ferry Road repaving
Please modify it so that the contractor can fix the 24 worst frost heaves on
East Man Road between Sandy Point Road and Clements’ Marketplace.
They are easy to identify.
There are a bunch of tie-rods, sway bars, brake calipers and hub caps lying next
I offer my services to road guard or anything else to reduce costs.
In all seriousness, please do everything you can to bring the spirit of contract
law up to the letter of contract law to fix the worst parts. Twenty-four thousand people will thank you daily.
