Open Records Requests

RIDOT had developed a streamlined process to fulfill public records requests.

While not required, filling out and submitting our Open Records Request Form will allow you to clearly indicate the documents you are seeking while helping us fulfill your request as quickly as possible.

For those wishing to otherwise submit their written request without using the form, please provide:

  • Your contact information
  • Title of the document(s) requested to be inspected or copied
  • A general description of the subject matter of the document(s)
  • (If known), the name and title of person at RIDOT having custody of requested document(s)

Please fax your request to (401) 222-4226 or mail to:

    Office of Legal Counsel
    Rhode Island Department of Transportation
    Room 250
    Two Capitol Hill

Please note: Those requesting copies of any documents may be assessed a fee including an hourly charge for searching and copying as provided by the Access to Public Records Act.
