Stadium site

A riverwalk will be developed on both sides of the Pawtucket River, shown here in rendering of the new Tidewater stadium.

PAWTUCKET – Pawtucket is receiving an outsized portion, or about half, of $2.5 million in Rhode Island Infrastructure Bank grants statewide, giving the city a leg up as it continues to pursue major infrastructure upgrades in the downtown, along the riverfront, and near a newly opened train station.

According to a winning grant application provided to The Breeze this week, a $350,000 grant will go toward green stormwater infrastructure, landscaping, increased accessibility and resetting of curbing and striping for new parking along Dexter Street, Andrew Ferland Way and Mason Street, complementing the future mixed-use development of Dexter Street Commons at 71 Dexter St.

Welcome to the discussion.

We’ve recently revised our comment policy to help us be more consistent and to be in keeping with our goal to promote a better community conversation. If a comment is deleted, rather than complain about it, simply try again by modifying the verbiage.

Comments that will be deleted include:
  • Those that include threatening, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist, sexist or sexually-oriented language. This includes any name-calling/nicknames of people both on the local and national level.
  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
Please use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know if you believe a comment was allowed in error.

What we at The Breeze would truly like to see are comments that add history and context to a story or that use criticism constructively.
