WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee and U.S. Sen. Jack Reed will be visiting Warwick to discuss efforts to improve the Station District.

Chafee and Reed are scheduled to join Warwick Mayor Scott Avedisian Monday morning to announce the next steps in marketing and developing the area, which sits near T.F. Green Airport and the InterLink transportation hub.

Officials have long wanted to revitalize the area with mixed-use development that takes advantage of the nearby transportation options.

Officials from the airport, state Department of Transportation and the Economic Development Corp. are also scheduled to participate in Monday's announcement.
