Pell Bridge high-speed toll lanes closed for work

JAMESTOWN, R.I. (AP) — Drivers on the Newport Pell Bridge should expect traffic delays during the next few weeks.

The Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority Monday closed down the high-speed tolling lanes so crews can update the tolling equipment.

The Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority says the open road tolling lanes are expected to remain closed until Wednesday, April 13.

It says drivers should expect delays during the morning and evening commutes during that period.

The authority says the new equipment is expected to more accurately read E-ZPass transponders and license plates.

The concrete road will also be replaced.
