The Longest Tunnel In Rhode Island Has A Truly Fascinating Backstory

While railroad tunnels certainly still exist (and function), many of them are more a part of our history than they are the present. That’s certainly the case for the longest tunnel in Rhode Island, the East Side Railroad Tunnel. You may have heard about this tunnel because of a chaotic 1993 incident, but the truth is, its history goes back much, much farther.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
