NEWPORT, R.I. (WPRI) – Commuters and tourists alike can breathe a sigh of relief, as lane closures on the Pell Bridge have ended ahead of schedule.
Single-lane closures have been in effect on both sides of the bridge since early May as part of a resurfacing project, and were scheduled to be in place until Thursday. Despite an unusually rainy May, work continued on schedule.
