NEWPORT, R.I. (WLNE) — The Rhode Island Department of Transportation is offering a tour of the Pell Bridge reconstruction project Tuesday.

The tour will give an update on the project’s progress, with Department of Transportation director Peter Alviti taking questions on its status.

Anyone that is interested in taking the tour will be able to do so.

The reconstruction project aims to reduce traffic on the bridge, which thousands of drivers use to travel across Narraganset Bay each day.
