The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) is set to change the traffic pattern on the George Washington Highway (Route 116) Bridge on Thursday. According to RIDOT, one lane of travel will be open in both directions on the northern half of the bridge, which carries thousands of vehicles over I-295 every day. The move will facilitate repairs and repaving on the south side of the bridge as part of a $16.2 million rehabilitation project involving 10 bridges in the area. RIDOT expects the traffic pattern on the bridge to change two more times this year before the construction concludes in autumn.
