JOHNSTON, R.I (WPRI) – A new traffic pattern on Interstate 295 will have things looking a bit different this weekend.
The work starting on Friday night will create a new lane shift, pushing traffic to the right on I-295 North in Johnston between Scituate and Hartford Avenues.
The shift is part of the $42.6 million-project rehabbing four bridges that carry I-295 at the Route 6 interchange at Exit 9.
Each structure is nearly 50 years-old and carries about 76,000 vehicles a day.
A similar lane shift heading south on Interstate 295 is expected in early September.
