WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — Warwick Mayor Frank Picozzi said a water main break in the city has closed several streets in the area as crews work to fix the problem.
In a social media post, Picozzi said the areas affected are Route 117 West between Tollgate Road and Commonwealth Avenue.
While people can still use the onramp to I-95 North, there is a detour around the area. The westbound ramp from 95 South is also closed.
Picozzi added that this is not a city water main, but owned by Kent County Water Authority, and that the road is a state road.
RIDOT along with KCWA are on scene.
He is urging people to use alternative routes, as “this isn’t something that’s going to be fixed quickly.”
