Parade & Events Information
During parades and special events such as bicycle and road races, motorists may encounter delays due to closed roads or lanes. Generally, parades involve a full roadway closure with a detour. With bicycle or road races, lanes or shoulders may be closed and motorists should use caution making turns when sharing the roadway with a race course.
RIDOT recommends seeking alternate routes during these special events. Please direct any questions or comments to the Department's Customer Service office on weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 401-222-2450.
