Reminder: October 2023- April 2024 Traffic Delays

Newport Pell Bridge: Beginning on October 16, 2023, traffic eastbound will be reduced to one lane between the old toll plaza and the bridge. Traffic will also be reduced to one lane in the same area on the westbound side. These lane restrictions will be in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until April. During this time, no vehicles wider than 8'6" will be allowed on the bridge.

I-195 West Washington Bridge: While permanent repairs on the damaged span of the bridge are likely still months away, crews have scrambled to build a temporary way for two lanes of westbound traffic to share half of the eastbound span. It will also maintain a lane on the westbound bridge for emergency vehicles only. The limited reopening of westbound traffic won't alleviate all of the delays hampering travel between the East Bay and the rest of Rhode Island, because the shared eastbound span will only have half the normal capacity of 195 westbound before the shutdown.
