The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) is closing a local road in Hopkinton, close to the Connecticut line, in order to repair a culvert damaged by the intense flooding in March.
Clarks Falls Road, off Route 3, will be closed from Monday, June 28 through Saturday, July 3, 2010. The road is too narrow to remain open during construction and must be closed during this project.
Motorists will be directed to use Route 3 and I-95 to reach Route 216 at Exit 93 in Connecticut. They will then follow East Clarks Falls Road back into Rhode Island.
RIDOT is in the process of repairing flood damage at more than 140 locations throughout Rhode Island, with about a half dozen bridge closures remaining.
Motorists with questions can contact RIDOTís Customer Service office at 401-222-2450 weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Additional information will be available on RIDOTís website (www.dot.ri.gov) and its social media sites on Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and Blogger.
