RIDOT to renumber some highway exits – what will your new number be?

Providence

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Come Monday, the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) will begin changing exit numbers on I-195 from the I-95 interchange in Providence to the Massachusetts border.

The renumbering is part of a multi-year program updating the exits on interstates and other limited-access highways to reflect keyed mile markers, which is a system used nationwide.

The numbering method is now required by the Federal Highway Administration.

RIDOT plans to install temporary signs indicating the exit’s old number along with its new number. The signs will be up for an extended period of time so drivers can get used to the change.

Once I-195 is complete, RIDOT will begin changing the numbers on both Routes 10 and 37.

What will be your new exit number?

The renumbering of the highways should be completed by the end of the year. Next spring, RIDOT plans to renumber Route 24 from the Massachusetts line in Tiverton to West Main Road in Portsmouth.

RIDOT plans to contact electronic mapping and GPS companies to inform them of the renumbering program.
