Making Innovation Central to Rhode Island's Future Gina M. Raimondo, Governor


From building super high speed internet connectivity to improving traditional transportation systems and investing in our ports and other key growth centers, Rhode Island is creating an infrastructure for the 21st Century. Our strategic, cost-effective location in the heart of the Northeast corridor — approximately 45 minutes from Boston and three hours from New York City — provides direct access to the world's key transportation routes making it that very easy to reach the fifty million consumers who live within 300 miles of our state.
