Simultaneously, Director Alviti began a comprehensive restructuring of the department of transportation. Key among these changes was the transition to a project management approach where managers are completely responsible for construction projects from design to completion and for ensuring that they are on time, under budget and within scope.
Under his leadership, RIDOT has made bold steps forward. The department finished the 2016 Federal Fiscal Year with $174 million worth of projects started and is on a trajectory to have $1 billion total out for bid by the end of fiscal 2017.
Prior to joining RIDOT, Alviti was Principal Owner of Hudson Place Associates, a consulting civil engineering services firm. He also served as Director of Programs for the Laborers International Union of North America and as Director of Public Works for the City of Cranston, Rhode Island.
He serves as chairman of the Rhode Island Public Rail Corporation and is a board member of the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority, the State Planning Council, the State Traffic Commission, the Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority, and the Northeast Corridor Commission (NEC).
A registered engineer in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts, he holds a B.S. in Construction Technology from Roger Williams University and a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Northeastern University.
