The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) announced today that it will close a small section of Colebrook Road in Little Compton over three days next week for resurfacing.

The 0.4 mile stretch of road, which runs between Old Stone Church Road and Route 179 (Stone Church Road), will be closed for a paving operation beginning at noon on Monday, August 22, 2011, and continuing Tuesday and Wednesday, August 23 and 24, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. At the end of each day, the road will be reopened to traffic.
