TRAFFIC ADVISORY: I-95 Exits to Close Overnight for Resurfacing Beginning Next Week

The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) announced today that several exits along I-95 that provide access to Coventry, East Greenwich, West Greenwich and West Warwick will experience overnight closures for resurfacing operations beginning next week.

The work, part of a $7.5 million contract with J.H. Lynch to resurface 6.6 miles of I-95 in southern Rhode Island, will take place Sunday-Thursday nights from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. through October. The project will affect Exits 6, 6A, 7 and 8 on both I-95 Northbound and Southbound, including on- and off-ramps. Drivers should expect rough surfaces due to milled pavement.

This is the third contract for resurfacing on I-95 in southern Rhode Island in the past two years.

All work is weather-dependent and subject to change. For a specific list of dates and times these exits will be closed, please visit the RIDOT Travel Advisories website at
