Fixed roads and bridges; now let's do public transportation

In the last four years, we've fixed more than 100 roads and bridges, and right now, we're fixing another 100.

By the end of this year, we'll have started or completed repairs on nearly 120 bridges: a visible sign that we are rebuilding Rhode Island together. And in the process, we're putting thousands of Rhode Islanders to work in good jobs that don't require a college degree.
