Latest in a series of traffic pattern changes this fall scheduled to begin on November 30   |

| The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) today announced that a traffic shift on the 6/10 Interchange that puts Route 6 eastbound and westbound traffic on the westbound side of Route 6 will take place on the evening of Friday, November 30, 2018.

Work will begin at 7:00 p.m. and end at 7:00 a.m., weather permitting.

RIDOT will shift the traffic on Route 6 East to the left just after the Hartford Avenue exit. This move allows for bridge replacement over Hartford Avenue and Plainfield Street.

This change was first announced in early November as part of the overall traffic pattern changes for the first phase of the 6/10 Interchange reconstruction.

RIDOT cautions drivers that as this shift occurs, lanes will narrow from 12 feet to 11 feet which will require reduced speeds. Although no lanes will be closed, the shoulders will be restricted in this area. Minor delays are possible.

This change will remain in place for 12 months. 
Information on the project and recent traffic pattern changes can be found on RIDOT's website at www.ridot.net/610.

The Route 6/10 Interchange project 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.
