Vice President Biden to deliver speech in East Providence

Gov. Gina Raimondo's office has released further details regarding Vice President Joe Biden's upcoming visit to Rhode Island later this week.

It was announced Wednesday that Biden will deliver a speech at the state Department of Transportation's highway maintenance facility in East Providence on Friday.

Gov. Raimondo spokeswoman Marie Aberger says Biden's speech on "investing in infrastructure" at the Warren Avenue facility is the only scheduled event on his trip to the state.

It's unknown whether the vice president plans to make any other stops in Rhode Island or if he will return directly to Washington.

A news release sent out by Gov. Raimondo's office says Biden "will deliver remarks on how Rhode Island is taking action to invest in the state's roads and bridges."
