The Rhode Island Department of Transportation reports that, In about a month, Exit 22 B/C off I-95 North in Providence will close for approximately ten weeks, Sunday – Thursday nights from 9:00 pm to 5:00 am. This will allow RIDOT to repair the bridge joints, do some concrete patching on the underside of the bridge, and replace the bridge railing. The night closures will minimize the effect on traffic.
Exit 22A will remain open during these closures.
The detour routes, turn-by-turn directions are as follows:
- I-95 North to Exit 23 (State Offices/Route 146); Turn right onto Orms Street; Turn right onto Douglas Avenue; Turn right onto the on-ramp to I-95 South; Take I-95 South to Exit 22B (Route 6 West)
Work on the other six bridges should follow around the start of construction season on April 15. Final completion is scheduled for Spring 2021.
