RIDOT DIRECTOR Michael P. Lewis, fourth from left at table, met with USDOT Director Ray LaHood and transportation officials from across the nation at a February meeting in Washington on stimulus funding for transportation projects. On returning to Rhode Island, Director Lewis said, “We stand ready to put people to work. RIDOT expects to have every dollar spent by the deadline and may even be entitled to more. This could happen if other states can’t allocate all of their funds. Those unspent dollars will be redistributed to states ready to spend them and we will be in a position to spend more if we get more.”
