WEST WARWICKâ€”The deadline for roadwork at the intersection of Route 3 and Main Street is approaching, according to the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT).
Bryan Lucier, spokesperson for RIDOT, stated that crews have been replacing a broken drainage pipe. Once completed, they will resurface the road.
â€śThey will need to grind down part of the road and put the new riding surface on top of that,â€ť said Lucier.
The work should be complete by the first week of December, according to Lucier. Afterwards, he expects that the turning lane onto Route 3 will open up, in addition to the lane for East Greenwich Avenue and Main Street.
Filomena Gustafson is the West Warwick Town Council Member for Ward 4 where the intersection is located.
Referring to the traffic congestion, â€śI stopped over there and saw itâ€”itâ€™s really bad,â€ť said Gustafson at the town council meeting. â€śThey have their hands full fixing that.â€ť
