WARWICK, RI — Work continues on the $29.9 million ApponaugCirculatorProject night and day this week, touching on highway lighting on Post Road, gas main work on Centerville Road and landscaping throughout.
Motorists can expect lane shifts while we continue to install highway lighting on Veterans Memorial Drive, from Route 1 (Post Road) to Route 5 (Greenwich Avenue), and on Route 5 from Post Road to Luther Avenue, Monday–Thursday nights from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following day.
RIDOT will continue to have two southbound lanes closed prior to placing hot mix asphalt on Route 1 (Post Road), from West Shore Road to Veterans Memorial Drive. Two westbound lanes will remain open on Veterans Memorial Drive, from Route 1 to Route 5 (Greenwich Avenue). We plan on doing some landscaping and continue to install the integrally colored stamped concreate weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. which should not affect traffic. The two eastbound travel lanes, under construction, will remain closed until two-way traffic is established.
A multitude of activities continue on Centerville Road, from Warwick Executive Park to Apponaug Four Corners, weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. This includes landscaping behind the sidewalks, sidewalk and driveway work, from Drum Rock Road to Gilbane Street, and gas main installation, from Meadow Street to Apponaug Four Corners.
Current travel lanes will remain open with lane shifts from Drum Rock Road to Gilbane Street. As a reminder no traffic is permitted westbound from Gilbane Street to Apponaug Four Corners. Work at the former mill site, with no anticipated traffic impacts, will also continue. This includes landscaping and the placement of stamped concrete divider islands.
