EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – The bridge that carries off-ramp traffic from Exit 4 on I-195 East to Veterans Memorial Parkway in East Providence will close Saturday morning.
The Department of Transportation will close the bridge until summer 2013 in order to replace it.
The project is part of a bigger project to preserve the old Washington Bridge.
Drivers will have to follow a detour using Exit 8 (Route 1A/Route 114) to Warren Avenue.
The cost of rebuilding the bridge is $2 million.
