Good afternoon,


Plan ahead for your St. Patrick's Day celebrations this weekend. While we want everyone to have a good time, please do your part to get home safely and help make sure others do too.




Carolina Bridges, Charlestown/Richmond



We're replacing the top portion of the abutments and installing reinforcing steel, with the alternating one-way traffic pattern still in place.







Old Sakonnet River Bridge Superstructure Demolition, Tiverton/Portsmouth


This week we will continue installing the temporary steel bracing at two piers required for the removal of the main arch span.


There is currently a full navigational channel closure in effect for about one month. No boat traffic is allowed under the bridge until the arch span has been removed.




Victory Highway Bridge, West Greenwich



We plan to demolish the substructure, complete the substructure demolition in the median, install temporary concrete barrier and erosion control, and excavate on I-95 North and South, from Exits 5A (Route 102 South) and 5B (Route 102 North), Sunday-Thursday nights from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following day.




Woonsocket Hill Road Bridge, North Smithfield


Pavement repairs continue along Route 146 North and South at the Woonsocket Hill Road Bridge, with crews working Friday, and Sunday-Thursday nights from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following day.
