JOHNSTON —  The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) will shift lanes for I-295 North on Tuesday night, April 20, as it continues to replace the Greenville Avenue Bridge at the Exit 10 interchange in Johnston.
All northbound lanes will shift off a temporary bridge RIDOT was using in the median onto a newly rebuilt bridge. This will be the final shift in the project. The Greenville Avenue Bridge is 50 years old and carries 78,000 vehicles per day, according to RIDOT.
Remaining tasks include removal of the temporary bridge, reconstruction of the median and paving on I-295 and a section of Greenville Avenue under the bridge. Overnight lane closures may be necessary and will be posted at www.ridot.net/TravelAdvisories when scheduled, RIDOT reports.
Removal of the temporary bridge will require a three-night closure of Greenville Avenue in Johnston, which is tentatively scheduled for Monday, May 3 through Wednesday, May 5 from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Final completion for the $16.5 million project is scheduled for fall 2022.
