The Project

Our Bridge Group 32 project will address four bridges on the Cranston/Providence line. It includes replacing the bridges carrying I-95 over Elmwood Avenue and Wellington Avenue, as well as rehabilitation of the ramp bridges carrying traffic from I-95 North to Route 10 North (Huntington North) and Route 10 South to I-95 North (Huntington South).

Lane shifts will be put into place in the 2021 construction season on the two ramp bridges to accommodate the bridge rehabilitation work, which will be done by the end of the year. RIDOT will employ accelerated bridge construction methods for the two larger bridges over Elmwood and Wellington avenues, including the use of a series of four weekend lane closures and shifts in 2022 for I-95. The same method was utilized successfully in 2020 for replacement of the I-95 bridges over Roosevelt Avenue and East Street in Pawtucket.

RIDOT expects the weekend closures will create significant travel delays and will advertise each one well in advance. During those lane closure weekends, motorists will be advised to consider alternate routes such as I-295 and Route 10.
