Join us this Sunday at the Dominican Parade



Broad Street, or La Broa’ (broh-ah), is a road to opportunity that connects people in South Providence, Elmwood, and Washington Park to jobs, schools, open spaces, and resources. It is a backbone of commercial and cultural activity for the region. And yet, Broad Street is not a safe road to travel. But with our support, it can be.


This fall, the City of Providence is finally starting construction on a redesign of Broad Street that is 15 years in the making, and which 87% of residents support. Road repaving will provide a smooth, comfortable surface for all users. Better crosswalks will make it easy to walk across the streets. New ADA curb ramps will improve accessibility and easy navigation for people of all abilities walking and rolling on Broad Street. A two-way urban trail separated from car and truck traffic will give people biking, walking, and rolling a dedicated space on the road. Parking on both sides of the street will maintain the existing availability of street parking. Bus islands will make bus stops more accessible, efficient, and reliable. Improved traffic signals will provide people walking with a head start of several seconds before the light turns green for drivers traveling in the same direction.


It’ll look a little something like this:

Learn all about the past, present, and future of Broad Street here, and send your support for the plan here!


Before construction gets started, the City will be holding another information session for residents and businesses. We will let you know as soon as we know details.


Happy August,

Providence Streets Coalition
