PINPOINT TRAFFIC BLOG: Big Changes Coming to Your Providence Commute

Pinpoint Traffic

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – Big changes will soon be affecting your commute into Providence.

Starting Tuesday, February 18th, RIDOT will be permanently closing the Tobey St. on-ramp to Route 6 West.

The deteriorating bridge is one of seven structurally deficient bridges being replaced as part of the Route 6/10 interchange project.

So, if this change affects you – here’s a peak at your detour.

Drivers will continue heading west on Broadway, take a right onto Harris Ave, then turn around and hop onto Route 6.

Over the next two years – a new Tobey Street bridge will carry two-way traffic between the Federal Hill and Olneyville neighborhoods – providing access to a new service road.

It also will carry a new bike path. No major delays are expected.
