What You Need to Know

What's Happening?

RIDOT in Fall 2017 will begin a highway renumbering program for its Interstate and other limited-access highways, starting with the entire I-295 corridor from Warwick to the Massachusetts border in Cumberland. This work is taking place now.

The new exit numbers will be keyed to mile markers - a system used throughout the country for many years that the traveling public has come to expect.

When RIDOT installs the new exit number signs, it will install temporary signs indicating the old exit number and will leave them for an extended period of time.

Why is this Being Done?

Rhode Island and some of its neighboring New England states are among the last to change to this method of numbering its highways, as required by the Federal Highway Administration.

The highway numbers in Rhode Island were assigned sequentially.

What are the Benefits?

A mile-marker exit number system lets drivers know how far they need to travel to reach their desired off-ramp.

They also allow for easier expansion for future interchanges since the entire highway would not have to be renumbered to accommodate a new exit number.

Project Schedule

I-295 Timeline

The project will proceed from north to south, The contractor will complete renumbering each interchange before moving to the next interchange. The schedule is as follows:

  • Week of November 27:
    Old exits 8, 9, 10 and 11
  • Week of December 4:
    Old exits 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 and 7

The Exit 3/Route 37 interchange is located at Mile Marker 3, and will not need to be changed. All schedules are weather dependent and subject to change.

What's Next?

RIDOT is developing schedules for the continued renumbering of highways to a mile-marker system. The project will include I-95 and I-195, as well as Routes 4, 10, 24, 37, 78, 403 and the Airport Connector.
