After delay, part of Apponaug Circulator opens to 2-way traffic

WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) —  Two-way traffic is now flowing on another part of the Apponaug Circulator in Warwick.

The Rhode Island Department of Transportation was set to open a stretch to two-way traffic early Wednesday morning – but Mother Nature had other plans.

Tuesday’s drenching rains forced RIDOT to push back the opening by a few hours. RIDOT confirmed for Eyewitness News the traffic pattern changed about 2:45 p.m.. It affects the stretch of road from where Post Road splits off into West Shore Road to the Post Road Extension.

The double yellow lines were in place when Eyewitness News checked late Monday morning. warwick-ridot-apponaug-circulator-post-road-east-11-7-2016

The project – which has been in the works for two years now – consists of five roundabouts. RIDOT said the ultimate goal is to relieve congestion in the Apponaug area.
