Democratic gubernatorial candidate Clay Pell says the infrastructure in Rhode Island is failing, and he wants to spend at least $200 million to fix it.
Pell released his transportation and infrastructure plan Thursday using the Providence train station as his backdrop. Pell says the station is a good example of a transportation hub in need of repairs. If elected, Pell says he would include a bond referendum in 2016 and 2018 to create a $200 million program to improve bridges, roads and highways.
He says other projects could be paid for with federal funding.
