According to a study by the Road Information Program, Rhode Island will need to spend an extra $1.3 billion over six years to maintain the state's highways, roads and bridges. The report comes as the state is in the midst of a recession that has lowered tax collections. The report cites four routes in greatest need of repair: Coventry's Route 3, South Kingstown's Route 138, North Smithfield's Route 146 and Warwick's Route 5.
