Profile: Rhode Island DOT
Mar 30, 2017
The Rhode Island Department of Transportation may have the smallest territory to cover of any state DOT, but there's quite a few transportation facilities packed into that area. The Main Street of the east coast, I-95, carries millions of travelers, both locally and interstate. Amtrak's busiest line, the Northeast Corridor runs through the state, connecting Connecticut and Massachusetts. In addition there are ports, ferries, a major airport, and commuter buses and trains. Peter Alviti is RIDOT's director, and he spoke with Transportation Radio about his agency as part of our profile of state DOTs.
