The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) has announced a second phase of lane closures scheduled to take place the weekend of November 1, 2019 through November 4, 2019 to replace the Lafayette Road Bridge. The bridge carries Route 4 over Lafayette Road in North Kingstown, located between the Exit 3/Route 102 interchange and Oak Hill Road, near McKay’s Furniture.
During this phase, RIDOT will replace the southbound side of the bridge using a similar traffic pattern to that for installation of the northbound bridge. Route 4 will be taken down to one lane in each direction and shifted to a newly constructed center lane on Route 4 from 8 p.m. Friday, November 1 through 6 a.m., Monday, November 4. The on-ramp from Route 102 to Route 4 South will also be closed, with traffic detouring onto Route 2 North to return to Route 4 South. Motorists should plan for extra travel time or consider alternate routes during this weekend.
Lafayette Road also will be closed to traffic for the weekend.
The details are available on the RIDOT website. The detour map can be found on the RIDOT website as well.
