This image shows the transformation of Capital Center in progress. Francis Street construction is complete up until the over-passed train tracks and the bridge over the Woonasquatucket River. The former train tracks have been removed, but the land that turned into Memorial Boulevard is still a dirt lot. Similarly, Providence Place Mall is years away from construction, but the paths of the highway access ramps under construction are beginning to suggest its future shape.
