Good afternoon

Friday, March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day. This year it falls on a weekend, and there is a greater likelihood of more drunk and drugged drivers on our roadways. If you plan to celebrate, please also plan for a safe ride home. Find a designated driver or a ride share before you go out to enjoy any celebrations. And wear your seat belt. In many cases it’s your final defense against others making irresponsible and dangerous driving choices. To learn more about our ongoing safe driving initiatives, visit our website.


Henderson Bridge, East Providence/Providence

Structural steel, bridge deck and utility work are planned at this project next week, along with the continued closure of East River Street, from Waterman Street to Angell Street, weekdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.


I-95 North Viaduct, Providence

Overnight closures of various ramps within the Exit 39 (old Exit 22) interchange, portions of Route 6, and local roads within the project area are anticipated next week for bridge demolition, steel placement and wall work. Please follow signed detours during all closures. 

Pell Bridge Ramps Phase 2, Newport

Drainage, water and electrical work will continue along JT Connell Connector Road. Survey and utility work is planned at the intersection of America’s Cup Avenue and Farewell Street, and along Admiral Kalbfus Road, and work is expected along the rail corridor from the Newport station north to the area behind Braman Cemetery. Striping may also take place site wide which may result in temporary lane shifts at times. Bridge rehabilitation and demolition will also continue along Route 138 for the overpasses and may require temporary lane shifts along Third Street and JT Connell Highway.  Flaggers and police details will be onsite to guide vehicles through the work zones. 


Route 6/10 Interchange Reconstruction, Providence

Overnight demolition of the former ramp from Route 6 East to Route 10 South over Amtrak continues with noise anticipated Sunday-Thursday nights from 10 p.m.-6 a.m. Weekdays from 6:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., expect alternating lane closures along Route 10 South, from the 6/10 split to Westminster Street, for precast median barrier installation, and construction of retaining walls at the approaches to the Harris Avenue/Tobey Street bridge.


Safe Routes to School, Warren

During the next couple weeks, forming and pouring concrete is anticipated for the new pedestrian bridge.  Please use extra caution along Barker Avenue and the Warren Bike Path as construction vehicles will be entering and leaving the work zone.
