RIDOT: Curbing, Sidewalk Work Slated for Apponaug This Week
WARWICK, RI — The RI Department of Transportation’s work on the final elements of the Apponaug Circulator Project continues this week with curbing work at the Apponaug Four Corners roundabout and on Post Road through the village.
The agency reported late last week that the wall within the roundabout is complete and curbing work is taking place.
Route 117 (Centerville Road), east of Meadow Street to Post Road, including the bridge, remains closed to through traffic for construction, and will until the end of the project, expected later this fall, according to the RIDOT. Local traffic access will be maintained to the businesses in that area.
On Post Road in the village between Apponaug Four Corners and West Shore Road, the agency will begin curb and sidewalk work this week.
One eastbound lane is available from Apponaug Four Corners to Spruce Street.
“We are progressing toward making the previous two lane one-way roadway into a more pedestrian friendly road with a bike lane and parking on either side of a one lane one-way roadway,” the agency reported.
Parking may be difficult within the construction zone. Expect delays and seek alternate routes.
