PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — A new medallion will be placed on Federal Hill Friday to mark the completion of infrastructure work after nearly three years.

The Federal Hill Commerce Association said the medallion will be placed at the intersection of DePasquale and Atwells Avenue.

The medallion will have a pinecone designed into the brick work, “carrying on the tradition of hospitality the hill is well known for.”

Completed projects on Federal Hill include new gas lines, electrical lines, the repaving of the Avenue, sidewalks and now the brick work in four prominent sections.

“This has been a long and extensive project that has transformed the hill beautifully” said Rick Simone, president of the FHCA.

An unveiling ceremony is slated for 11:45 a.m.
