The Rhode Island Department of Transportation will permanently close Exit 4 (Central Avenue) from Route 24 North in Tiverton beginning Wednesday, March 25.
Motorists should use Exit 5 (Main Avenue) to reach the southern section of Tiverton. The new route should add less than five minutes to a trip.
The closed exit ramp will be used to store materials including beams for RIDOTís ongoing repair project underway on the existing Sakonnet Bridge. Aetna Bridge Co. is carrying out the $2.5 million project. Discontinuation of Exit 4 is a scheduled closure, as it is within the alignment for the new bridge to replace the Sakonnet Bridge.
