The Project

We are replacing the Greenville Avenue Bridge, which is actually two spans that carry I-295 over Greenville Avenue at the Exit 10 interchange in Johnston.

To minimize the effect on highway traffic, we built a temporary bridge in between the two bridges and will shift traffic onto it as needed. In 2020 we demolished and replaced the southbound bridge. In 2021, we will replace the northbound bridge.

This work comes on the heels of a public-private partnership in 2018 that resulted in a new highway interchange at the bridge that provides access to Citizens Bank's new corporate campus.

The bridge is 50 years old and carries 78,000 vehicles per day. The project is expected for completion in fall 2022.


PROJECT UPDATES | DECEMBER, 2020

We are scheduled to set steel for the new northbound Greenville Avenue Bridge at the Exit 10 interchange off I-295 in Johnston starting Monday night, December 14 for three consecutive nights.

This will require the overnight closure of Greenville Avenue on Monday-Wednesday nights, December 14-16 from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Follow signed detours.
