PAWTUCKET â€“ The $4.3 million project by the Rhode Island Department of Transportation to replace the crumbling Conant Street Railroad Bridge, which carries Conant Street over Amtrak and the Providence and Worcester Railroads between Mineral Spring Avenue and Barton and Weeden streets, is moving forward.
As of this week, the new concrete bridge deck has been cured and installation of granite curbing and sidewalks has begun. Preparations are also under way for the installation of new water and gas mains.
