RIDOT Restores I-195 To Five Lanes

(Providence, RI)  --  Interstate 195 west is back to five lanes of travel.  RIDOT closed the Taunton Avenue on-ramp just before the Washington Bridge on Monday night to make the change.  Lane closures related to a bridge improvement project led to major delays last week, prompting RIDOT to initially make an adjustment back to four lanes.  The department says it is examining traffic volumes and travel times from the past week and is developing options to establish a new work zone that will allow it to continue work on the structurally deficient bridge.
