Crews repair water leak in Warren; two-way traffic restored

WARREN, R.I. (WPRI) — Two-way traffic was restored on a Warren roadway after crews repaired a water leak Thursday afternoon.

The leak happened at a construction zone on Route 114 in the area of Water Street.

Part of the roadway was blocked off as crews worked to repair the leak, causing traffic backups throughout the day.

Deputy Warren Police Chief Joseph R. Loiselle said the roadway was fully reopened by 4 p.m.

The construction is expected to continue for four to five more weeks. Town officials recommend commuters seek alternate routes Sunday through Thursday from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
