Apponaug Circulator Project Ahead of Schedule

Warwick, RI –RIDOT’s Apponaug Circulator Project got a boost when engineers decided to take advantage of an opening in the work schedule to put in new water lines along Post Road in front of City Hall this summer, instead of a year from now.

The rescheduling of the water main work puts the project at least four months ahead of schedule, according to Warwick Principal Planner Rick Crenca.

“There was an opportunity to move forward and do it this year,” said Mayor Scott Avedisian of the water main project, so they took the opportunity.

The Apponaug Circulator Project is scheduled to finish in 2017, with five roundabouts replacing Apponaug’s major intersections, and all roads connecting them restored to two-way traffic, with the exception of Post Road as it travels past from Apponaug Four Corners past Warwick City Hall to West Shore Road.

The project will put roundabouts at Post Road at Williams CornerApponaug Four Corners, the Centerville Road and Tollgate Road intersection, the Greenwich Avenue and Veteran’s Memorial Drive intersection, and the Veterans Memorial Drive and Post Road Extension intersection, is expected to be complete in 2017.

Warwick Post visited Crenca in his office Friday, where he explained the changes the Apponaug Circulator Project will bring to the area’s traffic flow and economy. Check out the video above for his explainer on the project.
