WARWICK, RI —Drivers through Apponaug Four Corners (Post Road at Centerville Road and Greenwich Avenue) should be wary of potential lane closures this week at the RIDOT continues work at the center of that roundabout, the agency warns.

The floor shook inside City Hall on the second floor Friday as a road roller packed dirt on the side of Post Road in front the building. Outside, the roller sent heavy vibrations through the sidewalk as well.

One lane of travel will remain open continuously. Parking may be impacted within the construction zone. Expect delays and seek alternate routes if possible.
