Traffic Advisory UPDATE: New Traffic Pattern at the Victory Highway Bridge

The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) announced a traffic pattern change at the Victory Highway Bridge, carrying approximately 9,000 vehicles per day on Route 102 (Victory Highway) over I-95 in West Greenwich. Effective Friday, February 16, traffic has shifted to the south side of the bridge, while the Department demolishes and builds the new north side.

Built in 1969, this bridge has been classified as structurally deficient since 1995. The new bridge will be built in phases to reduce the impact on the motoring public. With day and night work planned, RIDOT will also resurface the Route 102 approaches and ramps to the two-span bridge, replace signing, striping and guardrail, and do minor landscaping and drainage work.

A second major lane shift is anticipated at the Victory Highway Bridge in Summer 2019 when RIDOT will move traffic to the north side of the bridge to demolish and build the south side. The $19 million project is slated for completion in Fall 2021. All schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change.

The replacement of the Victory Highway Bridge was made possible by RhodeWorks, RIDOT's ongoing commitment to repair structurally deficient bridges and bring Rhode Island's transportation infrastructure into a state of good repair, promote economic development, and create jobs. Learn more at
