RI still has the worst roads. What happened to RhodeWorks?

Remember when then-Governor Gina Raimondo (a Democrat, if that needs saying) insisted we needed truck tolls to fund her RhodeWorks program to finally fix the state’s infrastructure?  Well…

IanDon: According to the FHWA, Rhode Island has 609 miles of roads in rough or  very rough condition. Compared with total lane miles, this equates to 45  miles of roughness per 1,000, the highest in the United States"

As with the state’s pension system — which the state went right back to reamortizing as soon as Raimondo left her treasurer role — she’s a master of setting up solutions for which she won’t be around to be accountable.
