Providence streets open to two-way traffic

Providence, RI – A significant change in the traffic pattern is coming to downtown Providence tomorrow. Early in the morning, before the commute begins, Weybosset and Empire Streets are going from one way to two way. It's the first time since the 1970's these two streets have carried two-way traffic. It's expected to relieve congestion and make it easier to navigate the downtown area. Police are reminding pedestrians to look both ways before crossing these streets.
