Updated Traffic Alert regarding the RIDOT projects on Route 44/Putnam Pike and Route 7/Douglas Pike:
www.smithfieldri.com/construction-and-alternating-lane-closures-on-putnam-pike-at-route-44/

RIDOT has closed the I-295 on-ramp from Route 7/Douglas Pike southbound. This closure will remain in place until the Fall of this year. Motorists will follow a signed detour that will lead them to the following exit, which will then lead them to an immediate exit on I-295 northbound, returning back on to Route 7 northbound, and getting back on to I-295 southbound from there. Please refer to the map image in this post. RIDOT recommends that drivers plan additional travel time and reduce speeds through the work zone, which has begun in April and will end in November.

Nice little tour of the 295/7 exit/entrance system lol

Thanks. It’s the only way to do it safely

groan...

Also. Could you have the DOT improve the signage for the 295 N lane closure right before the RT 7 exit. Almost no notice and very abrupt lane closure. There will be accidents.

Yeah that ramp needed to be closed from the start I can’t believe they had us drive down the ramp with no merge to get on the highway that was incredibly unsafe not sure who thought that was a great idea but I’m glad it’s closed now also I’ve walked under that bridge and it’s falling apart this construction is absolutely necessary

Omg! 🙄😂😂

Hey, things have to get fixed ...at least they have a plan even tho it's a little weird it works and adds minimal time

Nightmare….grrrr

Like why? Why not do one interchange first?

Doing both the projects at the same time was terrible planning...

Donna David

Ray Voyer

Are they going to fix the rock formation that looks like a skull greeting you when rounding the curve as you exit 295 south to Rt. 7 south? Asking for a friend.

Kristin Grainey at the same time they’re doing the 44 bridge over the hwy 🥲 just fuck everyone that lives in burrillville lmfao

All you people moaning about them closing lanes and doing 2 projects at once, we’re just complaining about the roads all sucking 2 months ago. Now that work is being done, no one can be pleased. Good grief.

I have no idea what that drawing means.

They wanna make sure you hit the bumps an pot hole on both sides of the bridge

One bridge at a time would be a better plan. I wouldn’t be surprised if this got extended past Nov.

The project is part of the statewide rehabilitation of Rhode Island’s aging bridges.

Lol “not expected to cause traffic delays” who tf are they kidding? It’s a shitshow there to begin with. I expect accidents over the next 2 years.

Nothing you have done to route 44 has been an improvement it has only increased the likelihood of accidents and created less travel Lanes. you are going to increase traffic and injuries. you need to change it back to the way it was before you decided to waste our taxes

Just a reminder about Monday's Gun SAFEty event April 25th, 2022 3pm-7pm at the Smithfield Police Department. fb.me/e/2dfwkg38T ... See MoreSee Less

Some excellent shots were sent in from Smithfield's own Bryan Baron! The male Downy Woodpecker was spotted on Stump Pond, and the "Super Duck" was taken at the spillway in the Stillwater Scenic Trail!

Even with the disabilities Bryan faces, this does not stop him from doing what he loves.

Whooooahh get tf out of here

Manufacturers have already admitted it has little to no effect. I'm a hard no on it.

Don’t poison yourselves! It’s a crock of sh*t. I had “Covid” this weekend and felt fine 24 hours later and I haven’t gotten the jab. Open your eyes people!
