WARWICK CITY HALL, 3275 POST ROAD
The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) is scheduled to begin construction of several road diet projects in the City of Warwick. RIDOT will be hosting a public outreach meeting to provide an update on these projects and give an overview of the future improvements and lane configurations on Greenwich Avenue, Post Road and Elmwood Avenue.
Road Diet is a reduction in excess travel lanes (or under-utilized capacity) in order to achieve desired improvements, such as crash reduction, speed reduction, eliminate left turn conflicts, and increased lane and shoulder widths. Road Diets are one of FHWA’s 9 Proven Safety Countermeasures and are consistent with RI’s Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP).
ROAD DIET PROJECT LOCATIONS
Greenwich Avenue (Luther Avenue to Hillard Avenue)
Post Road (Veterans Memorial Drive to Jefferson Boulevard)
Elmwood Avenue (Post Road to Cranston City Line)
