Repairs to Include the East Woonsocket, North

End, Constitution Hill and Cato Hill Districts

 

WOONSOCKET, R.I.: Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt today detailed updates to road reconstruction that will occur in the East Woonsocket, North End, Constitution Hill and Cato Hill Districts, starting Monday, July 26th. Roads are being repaired in these districts under the direction of the Woonsocket Department of Public Works after recent gas main upgrades by National Grid Gas Company.

Mayor Baldelli-Hunt stated, "We have collaborated with National Grid to implement an aggressive road repair schedule, according to our high-quality standards, soon after they complete their necessary gas main enhancements. This collaboration, in conjunction with our own Department of Public Works road reconstruction program allows for upgrades to our gas mains and our roadways. This has proven to be a winning combination!"

Public Works Director Steve DAgostino stated, "We work closely with National Grid after they do their gas main upgrades so the roads they repair meet our specifications."

"Special thanks to Mike, Tim, Scott and Jonathan in our Engineering Department who oversee these operations," added Mayor Baldelli-Hunt.

Wednesday's search efforts to find Brian Laundrie are over. Florida's North Port Police tweeted "Nothing found. We will be back out Thursday, similar operation." Divers had been called in to the search for the fiance of Gabby Petito after her death was ruled a homicide.        Certain groups can now get a Pfizer-BioNTech's COVID-19 booster shot. The FDA granted emergency use authorization for those 65 years of age or older. The authorization also applies to adults who are at a high risk of symptoms, and adults who are frequently exposed at their jobs.        California's Governor is signing two laws to protect abortion privacy. Governor Gavin Newsom put his signature on Assembly Bill 1184 which makes it so sensitive medical information is only provided to the patient and no one else on the health care plan. Newsom also signed A-B 1356 which makes it illegal to post photos, videos or personal information online of anyone at reproductive health facilities including doctors, patients, and volunteers.        Oscar award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey is still not ruling out a run for political office. Speaking on an episode of the Set? ?it? ?Straight:? ?Myths? ?and? ?Legends podcast, McConaughey said he's "measuring it." He said he is more of a "philosopher-poet statesman" than a "definitive politician."        If you want your child rolling around like James Bond, you'll have to break the piggy bank wide open. The Little Car Company is making 125 DB5-Juniors, which are about two-thirds the size of the car you see in the movies. The price tag though is set at 123-thousand dollars.
