WARWICK, RI — RIDOT began the second, southern phase of the $25.3 million Toll Gate & Centerville Road bridges replacement project on Rte. 95 this weekend, shifting south traffic onto the paved median being built for the past year on I-95.
As a result, Exit 10A on I-95 South is closed, motorists must take exit 10B, RIDOT reports.
The Centerville Road Bridge, a two-span bridge, was first up. Centerville Road will remain open, but lane shifts will be used according to which bridge span is being worked on. During construction on the Toll Gate Road Bridge, traffic on Toll Gate Road will be detoured to Centerville Road and Commonwealth Avenue. Either Toll Gate Road or Centerville Road will be open to traffic at all times during construction.
Travelers should follow the detour signs and expect ramp closures, according to the RIDOT. I-95 South Exit 10A for Centerville Road eastbound toward Apponaug will be closed for the entire eight-day period. Drivers can follow a detour using Commonwealth Avenue to Leon E. Whipple Road to Toll Gate Road. The on-ramp to I-95 North from Centerville Road westbound also will be closed. RIDOT will have police officers available to help coordinate any U-turning traffic from Centerville Road westbound to Centerville Road eastbound.
