A visibly displaced block at the base of the Mount Hope Bridge caused one local kayaker to question the safety of this span.
"How safe is the Mt Hope bridge," asked Bob Obara after spotting the displacement.
Obara, a local kayaker, took the picture above at the end of February.
Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority (RITBA) Chairman David Darlington says the displacement causes no structural damage to the bridge and is not cause for alarm, reports The Sakonnet Times.
The stone will be replaced this season.
