Travel Notices

We want to make sure visitors are aware of any roadwork that may impact arrival/travel time. We encourage visitors to check the Rhode Island Department of Transportation site often for more information, and traffic cams. 

Mount Hope Bridge
From March 11 to May 17 (9am and 3pm Monday through Thursday, and 9am to 1pm on Fridays) the Mount Hope Bridge will be restricted to a single lane. This work is part of the Mount Hope Bridge Dehumidification project.

I-195/Washington Bridge Closure
If traveling to/from RWU via Washington Bridge/I-195, please plan for additional travel time or an alternative route.  

RIDOT has closed the westbound side of the Washington Bridge/I-195 West due to the discovery of the critical failure of some bridge components. Bypass lanes for I-195 West traffic from East Providence to Providence are open. According to RIDOT, this temporary traffic pattern allows two lanes of travel westbound and two lanes of travel eastbound – all operating on the eastbound Washington Bridge.
