EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Police announced that traffic changes will be implemented on Taunton Avenue beginning Wednesday.

Between the hours of 7-9 a.m. and 4-6 p.m., any traffic from the I-195 East off-ramp will not be able to turn left onto Walnut Street.

Police said this area near the off-ramp will be coned off from the traffic median past Walnut Street.

Potter Street at Taunton Avenue will become a right turn only and there will not be access to I-195 West.

Police said that they hope these changes will alleviate congestion and hazards that are often seen at these intersections.
