The City of Providence is teaming up with Brown University and the Thayer Street Management District Association to improve the area.

Over the next six months roads will be paved, new curb bump outs will be installed and new green space will be created -- all in an effort to make the area more attractive to residents and perspective students.

"It needs a facelift and everyone here is committed to making sure that this street and the area around it is as successful and thriving as we all want it to be," Brown President Christina Paxson said.
