Construction delayed in Providence nursing education center

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A redevelopment of the old South Street Power Station in Providence has been delayed.

Construction on the property, which will become a new nursing education center, has been pushed back a semester, the University of Rhode Island said.

According to URI, the developer originally negotiated two completion dates for the project and is now going with the later one.

Classes are slated to begin January 2017, with students from Rhode Island College and URI sharing classrooms and laboratories.

Brown University plans to use the other half of the building for offices.

Construction is scheduled to begin in May and the $220 million renovation should be complete by November 2016.
