What does Rhode Island DOT have against Cranston?

The mayor of Cranston, Rhode Island is conducting a preliminary investigation into how nearly 700 stop signs, not approved by the city, were installed.

Most if not all of the 692 stop signs on city roads intersecting state roads were placed by the state Department of Transportation.

City officials revealed the questionable signs last week after a months-long investigation that had three city employees driving around the city armed with color-coded maps that indicated the location of the 1,903 stop signs approved by the city.

The employees logged 692 stop signs on city streets that were not approved by the city for posting.
