PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The recently-built Glenbridge Avenue bridge has finally moved into its new home.

The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) temporarily closed Route 6 between Killingly Street and Hartford Avenue in both directions Tuesday night while workers slid the new bridge into place.

RIDOT said the original 53-year-old bridge, which crosses over Route 6 in Providence near the Johnston line, had been deemed structurally deficient.

This prompted the accelerated bridge replacement, which RIDOT said is a process that “minimizes the overall disruption to traffic and the surrounding neighborhoods.”

“There are a lot of moving parts, but the good news is we are doing in one week,” RIDOT Director Peter Alviti previously told 12 News. “We’ve condensed the disruption and the inconvenience that people normally experience for prolonged periods of times into a single week.”

Route 6 reopend at 5 a.m. Wednesday, just in time for the morning commute.

The new bridge is set to officially open Friday night.
