DOT asks for pa­tience with road work

Pawtucket Times - - REGION/OBITUARIES -

PROV­I­DENCE (AP) — There’s some good news and bad news for Rhode Is­lan­ders: Key roads and bridges are get­ting much-needed re­pairs — but it’s go­ing to mean de­tours and headaches.

The state Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion says it’s gear­ing up for 100 sep­a­rate in­fra­struc­ture im­prove­ment projects around the state. Work is sched­uled to be­gin this spring.

Key projects in­clude work on nearly ev­ery ma­jor artery, in­clud­ing In­ter­states 95, 295 and 195 as well as Routes 6, 37 and 146.

A num­ber of bridges around the state also are sched­uled for im­prove­ments.

The state’s mes­sage to com­muters: “We ap­pre­ci­ate your pa­tience.”

Of­fi­cials say the work will in­clude the re­con­struc­tion of the in­ter­change be­tween Routes 6 and 10 in Prov­i­dence.
