EAST GREENWICH, RI — RIDOT announces Division Street Bridge over Route 4 in East Greenwich will fully open Friday, moving the $22.9 million project closer to its anticipated completion this fall.
The Department is making all efforts to complete the project by late fall, including the removal of the temporary Division Street bridge, installing new signage and paving sections of Division Street and Route 4 near the bridge, according to a statement from the agency.
RIDOT’s Division Street project is replacing the 55-year-old Division Street bridge, which carries 14,000 vehicles per day and is a vital link for many residents and businesses in East Greenwich and Warwick. It was only one rating point away from becoming structurally deficient and had to be replaced.
RIDOT replaced the bridge using a temporary bridge that accommodated Division Street traffic with no lane closures or delays. The project also included advanced stormwater treatment technology called Jellyfish, which uses a series of cartridges with tentacle-like components that capture debris, including sediment, oils and other stormwater pollutants.
