RIDOT: Rte. 2 North Ramp to Rte. 117 Closing Briefly Wednesday
WARWICK — The Rhode Island Department of Transportation will close the ramp from Rte. 2 North to Rte. 117 East in Warwick for drainage repairs at 7 p.m. Wednesday night, May 8.
Depending on the extent of repairs that are needed, the ramp may remain closed into the daytime hours on Thursday, May 9. Motorists should plan additional time for travel, RIDOT noted in an announcement Monday.
Motorists will need to stay on Rte. 2 North and follow the detour signs to R.te 113 (East Avenue) to access I-95 North. To return to Rte. 117, motorists should take the ramp to I-95 South and take Exit 10B or Exit 10A for Route 117 West or East, respectively.
In addition to the ramp closure, the right lane will be closed on Rte. 2 North at Ginsu Way. Route 117 East traffic coming from West Warwick already is detoured because of bridge construction and should follow the directions above to reach I-95 or return to Route 117.
