A Return to Providence's "Smart City" downtown redevelopment

A protected tree trunk in the redevelopment area on Dyer Street. Downtown Providence, Rhode Island.

A few Saturdays ago I returned to Providence, Rhode Island to survey what work has been completed of the knowledge economy redevelopment of the Interstate 195 corridor area. I first visited the site a year ago--see this post for more information--and I wanted to document the change since then. As these images below show, the city started to transform the space into its new, smart future. The full photoset is available on Flickr.

"Smart" earth moving

"Smart" concrete drainage pipes

A "Smart" tractor.

A "Smart" sunset?

"Smart" concrete road barriers.
