One user recently asked about recent road construction along West Main Road.
Bryan Lucier, spokesperson for the Department of Transportation (DOT), provided this answer.
The work is part of a $3.8 million resurfacing project with D'Ambra Construction that covers two miles of West Main Road from Locust Avenue to Route 24. In addition to the paving, the contractor will also be replacing some sidewalks, working on the signals at several intersections, and repairing some drainage structures. We expect the work to be completed this fall.
As work on West Main Road northbound continues, the right lane will be closed Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. There may be additional lane shifts as the work moves onto the southbound side of the road, and those changes will be posted on our Travel Advisories website at http://www.tmc.dot.ri.gov/traveladvisories/default.asp when they take place.
