Classic cars were paired with politicans Friday morning, Nov. 30, in East Providence for the official opening of a new road: Waterfront Drive along the Seekonk River from Warren Avenue to Dexter Road. A parade of classic cars owned by customers of SD Concepts, which is moving from West Warwick to Dexter Road in East Providence, drove down Waterfront Drive and through a red ribbon hung over the road. "It was a unique way to officially open the road, rather than using gold scissors to cut the ribbon, as is usually the case with ribbon cutting ceremonies," said a spokesperson for RIDOT. Among the dignitaries who spoke were RI Gov. Lincoln Chafee, RIDOT Director Michael Lewis, and East Providence Mayor Bruce Rogers.
