Weaver House refurbished, reopened

February 28, 2012

EAST PROVIDENCE — For 29 years, the city-owned Weaver House on Grove Avenue sat vacant, shuttered by the city in 1983 because of its age and need for major repairs.
"The 29 years the Weaver House sat dormant was a great loss to the city. Today, it's a beautifully restored building that is a vital part of the community once again," East Providence Mayor Bruce Rogers told a gathering of city and state officials Tuesday at a public open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the completion of the Weaver House restoration project.

Lincoln water main ruptures

February 28, 2012

LINCOLN — A weekend break in a 20-inch water main had Old River Road closed to traffic Monday as work to repair the leak continued late into the night.
The affected line carries drinking water up from North Providence and supplies a standpipe in Manville but most local services could be rerouted, according to John Faile, town water superintendent.
As a result, only 3 to 4 homes were reported to be without water as the repair was under way Monday, Faile said.
