Providence mayor issues plan for improving infrastructure

The mayor of Providence has unveiled a five-year capital improvement plan that calls for spending between $16 million and $34 million annually on repairs and infrastructure improvement projects in the city.

Mayor Jorge Elorza's proposal will be reviewed by the City Plan Commission.

Elorza's plan calls for spending $21.4 million in the upcoming fiscal year, with $10 million of that spent on resurfacing and street repairs and $2.2 million spent on sanitary sewers and stormwater management.

Stormwater sewer improvements are required under the terms of a consent agreement between the city and the state Department of Environmental Management.

The proposal foresees spending $19 million in fiscal 2019, $34 million in 2020, $31 million in 2021 and $16 million in 2022.
