Good afternoon,


Work at the 6/10 Interchange is progressing with some new traffic patterns in place. Get the latest here [].




Carolina Bridges, Charlestown/Richmond 


The 24-hour alternating one-way traffic pattern remains along Route 112 North and South, from Butter Lane to Carolina Mill Lane as we install reinforcing steel and place concrete at the end posts, and install sidewalks and curbing.

We will reclaim (grind) and pave Diamond Hill Road North and South, from Industrial Road to I-295, with partial lane closures, Friday night, November 16 and Sunday-Tuesday nights from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Delays anticipated.




I-195 Corridor Bridges, East Providence and Providence


The bridge deck has been poured, covered and is wet curing, rail post supports are being installed, and the curbing and drainage work is ongoing at the Parkway Ramp Bridge. If the weather cooperates, we'll pave the deck of the closed Lyon Avenue Bridge the first week in December. We've poured and blanketed the approaches to protect them from the weather at the Blackstone Street Bridge, and have started the on-ramp reconfiguration at the Warren Avenue ramp to the Parkway Ramp Bridge.

We are scheduled to finish paving the closed Nayatt Road East and West, from Middle Highway to Bay Road, Saturday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. During the week, we will do drainage work from Washington Road to Bay Road, Monday-Wednesday and Friday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

We continue to work on the dry swale, which is a shallow, linear channel to handle storm water runoff, signal work and sidewalk and handicap improvements. On Route 177 (Main Road) at #1791 and Main Street at Old Harbor Road in Little Compton, we are focusing on handicap ramp installation.
