The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) will begin the next phase of extended-weekend highway lane closures and local street closures on Friday, June 26 for work at the bridges that carry I-95 over Roosevelt Avenue and East Street in Pawtucket. RIDOT expects delays and recommends that highway travelers use I-295 and Route 146 as alternate routes.

During the extended-weekend operation, one of the three I-95 South through lanes in the area of Exit 30 will be closed. It will reopen prior to the morning rush hour on Monday, June 29 and the current lane split will be removed with lanes shifted to the right. When the lane reopens, motorists will encounter a lane split for I-95 South in this area with one lane to the right and two lanes to the left of the split. All lanes go through and motorists should not stop or slow down at the split. The lane split will be in effect for approximately one month.

Travel lanes on I-95 North will not be affected. However, the Fountain Street on-ramp to I-95 North will be closed for the weekend.

This weekend’s operation will affect local traffic on East Street Avenue, with the road closed at the I-95 overpass. Motorists on East Street westbound should follow a detour turning left on Park Street, right on Central Avenue and right on Roosevelt Avenue to return to East Street. Drivers heading east on East Street can turn right onto Middle Street, left onto Central Avenue and left onto Fountain Street to return to East Street.

All construction projects are subject to changes in schedule and scope depending on needs, circumstances, findings, and weather.
