RIDOT breaks ground on re-construction project in Warren

 

WARRREN, RI (WLNE) – RIDOT broke ground on a reconstruction project in Warren Wednesday.

The project will lead to the removal of a dam from Kickemuit River known as the Warren Reservoir.

RIDOT says flooding caused by the dam on Schoolhouse Road has been an ongoing issue.

Once the dam is removed, Schoolhouse Road will be elevated.

RIDOT says this will provide an important evacuation route, improve water quality, and habitat for fish and wildlife.
