Warwick, RI — Lane restrictions and potential traffic delays are expected this week through the area of the $29.9 million Apponaug Circulator Project, as work continues on the project to reshape the downtown area.

As we recently reported, the iconic Warwick water tower is scheduled for demolition sometime in late February or early March.

Here’s the schedule of planned work for the area for Jan. 12 through 17, 2015, weather permitting, as reported on the City of Warwick Apponaug Bypass web page:

Post Road – West Shore Road to Veterans Memorial Drive:

  • Crews will continue installation of a new drainage system along the east side of the roadway, from Lockhart St. to Locust St.
  • National Grid Electric will install new utility poles and overhead wires.
  • Two travel lanes will be closed during construction activities, from 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Centerville Road [Rte. 117] – Diamond Hill Road to Tollgate Road:

  • Cox Communications will continue relocation of overhead wires, from Tollgate Road to Diamond Hill Road.
  • One travel lane will be closed during daytime activities from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Veterans Memorial Drive Extension (Former Mill Site):

  • Removal and disposal of abandoned facilities within the former Mill Site will continue, with no effect on traffic.
