Nightly Closures of Exit 22 B/C off I-95 North Start Monday Night
On Monday night, June 3, the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) will once again temporarily close Exit 22 B/C off I-95 North overnight as part of a seven-bridge $10.4 million preservation project in the City of Providence. The closures will continue Sunday-Thursday nights from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., through mid-June.
Motorists will follow a short, two-mile detour using Exit 23 (State Offices/Route 146.) This will allow RIDOT to repair the bridge joints and replace bridge railings, along with other repair work. Exit 22A will remain open.
The detour routes are available at www.ridot.net/DetourMaps. Turn by turn direction are as follows:
I-95 North to Exit 23 (State Offices/Route 146); Turn right onto Orms Street; Turn right onto Douglas Avenue; Turn right onto the on-ramp to I-95 South; Take I-95 South to Exit 22B (Route 6 West)
Final completion for the project is scheduled for spring 2021.
The preservation of these seven bridges in Providence was made possible by RhodeWorks, RIDOT's ongoing commitment to repair structurally deficient bridges and bring Rhode Island's transportation infrastructure into a state of good repair, promote economic development, and create jobs.
