The Barton Corner Bridge Project is trending ahead of schedule, further minimizing disruption to commuters and the surrounding community. The replacement of the northbound bridge span, originally scheduled for tomorrow at noon, will now take place overnight tonight. Route 2, between Division Street to just south of James P. Murphy Industrial Highway, will be closed from 9 p.m. tonight to 6 a.m. tomorrow. Media interested in covering the replacement operation live should contact Rose Amoros at 401.300.9538 or email@example.com to coordinate a safe staging area.
Signed detours and police details will be in place throughout this operation. For more information on the Barton Corner project, visit www.dot.ri.gov/BartonCorner. Live camera feeds are also available online for those interested in following the action from their PC or mobile device. For safety reasons, the public is discouraged from watching the move from the side of the highway or along Route 2.
