    The deadliest hurricane to ever hit the Northeast coast in the US was the 38 hurricane 70 years ago.

    The Fox Point Hurricane Barrier was built in part because of the 38 hurricane ( and Carol in '54). Recently, there's been a project underway (the I-Way project, formerly known in the press as "The Little Dig") to relocate I-195 through downtown Providence, and a new bridge was installed right in front of the barrier. The moving of the bridge from where it was constructed was featured in an episode of Mega Movers.
