The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) will shift all lanes on I-95 South at the Exit 6A (Hopkins Hill Road) interchange in West Greenwich to the left at 9:00 p.m. on Friday night, March 20. Currently, all lanes are shifted to the right.
The traffic pattern change allows RIDOT to continue repairs to this bridge which carries I-95 over Hopkins Hill Road. The right lane shift on I-95 North will remain in place until mid-spring, when it will be restriped into a left lane shift.
The Hopkins Hill Road Bridge is one of 12 bridges and culverts along the I-95 corridor from Warwick to West Greenwich that is part of the $10.8-million Bridge Group 5 project. RIDOT will perform preservation-level maintenance to all these structures to extend their service lives, avoiding the need for far more expensive bridge rehabilitation or replacement projects in the future. The entire 12-bridge project will be complete by the end of 2020.
All construction projects are subject to changes in schedule and scope depending on needs, circumstances, findings, and weather.
