Woonsocket Updated Schedule for Road

Repairs to Include the East Woonsocket, North

End, Constitution Hill and Cato Hill Districts

 

WOONSOCKET, R.I.: Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt today detailed updates to road reconstruction that will occur in the East Woonsocket, North End, Constitution Hill and Cato Hill Districts, starting Monday, July 26th. Roads are being repaired in these districts under the direction of the Woonsocket Department of Public Works after recent gas main upgrades by National Grid Gas Company.

Mayor Baldelli-Hunt stated, "We have collaborated with National Grid to implement an aggressive road repair schedule, according to our high-quality standards, soon after they complete their necessary gas main enhancements. This collaboration, in conjunction with our own Department of Public Works road reconstruction program allows for upgrades to our gas mains and our roadways. This has proven to be a winning combination!"

Public Works Director Steve DAgostino stated, "We work closely with National Grid after they do their gas main upgrades so the roads they repair meet our specifications."

"Special thanks to Mike, Tim, Scott and Jonathan in our Engineering Department who oversee these operations," added Mayor Baldelli-Hunt.

Ninety-three-percent of coronavirus cases in the U.S. are linked to the Delta variant. That's according to the latest numbers from the CDC which looked at the last two weeks of July. However, the Delta strain accounts for 98-percent of the infections when looking at the region where states like Iowa and Kansas are located.       A new report shows fewer jobs were added in the U.S. than expected. Payroll processing firm ADP says 330-thousand positions were added last month, which is much fewer than the 650-thousand jobs analysts were expecting. The ADP figures come ahead of the jobs report that'll be released by the federal government on Friday.       Attorneys for former President Trump are attempting to block the release of Trump's tax records to a U.S. House committee. A motion was filed with a federal court after the Justice Department gave the go-ahead for the Treasury Department to release the documents. Trump's lawyers claim there isn't a legitimate reason for Congress to access them.       A majority of New Yorkers want Governor Andrew Cuomo to resign. That's according to the results of a Marist survey which shows 59-percent of New Yorkers feel that way. Meantime, the poll results also say 32-percent think the governor should serve out the rest of his term.       There's a new service that will help out folks in trouble. Citizen, an app that notifies users about crimes and emergencies in their area, is rolling out a new service that will call 911 for those who need help. It will set users back about 20-dollars.       Guests at the upcoming Met Gala in New York must show proof they're fully vaccinated against COVID and wear masks. This follows news that all New York Fashion Week shows next month will require COVID shots too. The gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, called "America: A Lexicon of Fashion," will be held on September 13th.
