The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) implemented detours for northbound traffic on the Lonsdale Avenue and Broadway bridges over I-95 in Pawtucket for bridge repair work for the next three months. Southbound traffic over the bridges is not affected.
Construction is being phased to work on one half of the bridge from now until the end of June. The other half will be done with just a lane shift. Traffic patterns are expected to be restored by the end of the year.
The northbound detours along Lonsdale Avenue and Broadway are as follows:
Lonsdale Avenue Bridge: Turn right onto Comstock Street, left onto Slater Street, left onto Quincy Avenue and follow to return to Lonsdale Avenue. Trucks should continue along Comstock Avenue one more block past Slater Street and turn left onto Main Street, then left to Quincy Avenue and follow it to Lonsdale Avenue.
Broadway Bridge: Turn left onto Blackstone Street, right onto Fountain Street, right onto Central Avenue and follow to return to Broadway.
All construction projects are subject to changes in schedule and scope depending on needs, circumstances, findings, and weather.
