Old Ferry Rd Bristol, RI - Bristol
RWU wants to sell its million dollar water tower to the water company (BCWA) for $1 in order to avoid paying for long term maintenance of the tower.
The water tower is to help provide them with more water pressure which the BCWA states it is not responsible for. Home owners without sufficient water pressure are given a one time stipend for equipment which covers a small part of the cost and after that breaks down the bills are not covered.
In order to facilitate the water tower the BCWA spent several hundred thousand dollars on digging up Ferry Rd to install new water pipes for the tower feed. This cost has not been reimbursed by RWU. A homeowner here would have to pay 100% of the cost of any feed pipes to connect for their water feeds.
601 Metacom Ave Bristol, RI 02809, USA - Bristol
Cars headed south on Metacom Ave at Gooding at the red light have two lanes that turn into one after the Shell station.
The right lane at the light should be right turn only.
What happens is that cars go to the right lane in order to pass the car ahead of them but then the second lane disappears so it becomes a game of chicken.
Aggravating the situation is that they still allow left turns into the Brooks plaza just at the point where the southbound travel lanes turn into one lane. Those cars should have moved into the left turn only lane at the light.
