East Shore Expressway Bridge replacement underway

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Exit 7 off I-195 East and a section of Warren Avenue are still closed off while the Expressway Bridge is replaced.

Transportation officials said that the concrete fittings and a brand new bridge deck will be in place by Sunday.

If you drove by the area on Saturday, you would notice there is no bridge there at all.

The RIDOT cited their preparedness for the project’s smooth execution.

The new bridge is expected to be open to traffic on Tuesday.
