The Project

We replaced the Greenville Avenue Bridge, which is actually two spans that carry I-295 over Greenville Avenue at the Exit 10 interchange in Johnston.

To minimize the effect on highway traffic, we built a temporary bridge in between the two bridges and will shift traffic onto it as needed. In 2020 we demolished and replaced the southbound bridge. In 2021, we replaced the northbound bridge.

This work comes on the heels of a public-private partnership in 2018 that resulted in a new highway interchange at the bridge that provides access to Citizens Bank's new corporate campus.

The bridge is 50 years old and carries 78,000 vehicles per day.
