The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) has scheduled to close the ramp from Route 2 North to Route 117 in Warwick for drainage repairs at 6 p.m. on Sunday night, April 7. Depending on the extent of repairs that are needed, the ramp may remain closed into the daytime hours on Monday, April 8. Motorists should plan additional time for travel.
Motorists will need to stay on Route 2 North and follow the detour signs to Route 113 (East Avenue) to access I-95 North. To return to Route 117, motorists should take the ramp to I-95 South and take Exit 10B or Exit 10A for Route 117 West or East, respectively.
In addition to the ramp closure, the right lane will be closed on Route 2 North at Ginsu Way. Route 117 East traffic coming from West Warwick already is detoured because of bridge construction and should follow the directions above to reach I-95 or return to Route 117.
The Route 2 North to Route 117 ramp had been scheduled to close on Sunday but because of the forecast for heavy rain was rescheduled.
