Conditions Have Not Improved

Hey, RIOC! Who's minding the store, street striping and painting redux?

RIOC's most critical failure, a nearly vanished crosswalk outside the Senior Center, used to access the bus stop across the street. An illegally parked car directly across from PSD didn't help.

A year ago, we said RIOC should not be blamed for the lousy work the State DOT did under a $350,000 contract to update Main Street striping and painting only six months earlier. Now, it's worse, and it's on RIOC.

Of all the simple tasks local governments are assigned to do, making sure traffic patterns are maintained and crosswalks are clearly marked ranks right up there with the easiest.

Where once a double yellow line marked the traffic pattern through the Main Street canyon, there's only bare bricks.

Yet, two years down the badly marked road, RIOC still can't get it done.

A reminder of what was, twin yellow stripes fade into oblivion near Blackwell House.

A helpful, public service, a reminder of RIOC of what a properly marked and safe crosswalk and striping pattern looks like.
