There was heavy traffic on the Newport Bridge on Wednesday afternoon (May 17th). This was due to the important but disruptive initial prep work that was necessary to allow lane crossovers required for traffic pattern changes for the bridge deck work to begin. RITBA apologizes for the delays and inconveniences this caused. There is however, good news to share. With the completion of this initial prep work, construction mobilization and scheduling are such that we do not anticipate any lengthy lane closures during the morning or afternoon rush hours from now until after the three-day Memorial Day weekend. After Memorial Day, a single lane traffic pattern in each direction will begin.

The Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority announced today that it will begin a major roadway deck project on the Newport Pell Bridge starting on May 15, 2017. To read the press release concerning the project CLICK HERE.
