Newport Kicks off First Transportation Master Plan

Project Aims to Develop Solutions for Resident and Visitor Travel Needs
 
NEWPORT, R.I. (Thursday, June 3, 2021) – As another busy summer season is getting underway, the City of Newport is formally kicking off its first comprehensive Transportation Master Plan.
 
Since the last study that dealt with transportation issues was undertaken for the City in 2001, there have been significant changes in population, development and the ways in which those who live, work and visit the City-by-the-Sea get around. With Newport’s tourism activity also increasing year-round, the need to improve connectivity between the City’s network of water transportation, roads, bike lanes and public transit opportunities has become even more pressing.
 
Leading the effort will be the City’s Planning Board and staff, along with City Council, Rhode Island Department of Administration’s Division of Statewide Planning, and a local Residents Advisory Committee.
