RI to install reflectors on highway curves

PROVIDENCE, RI – The Rhode Island Department of Transportation is making it easier for drivers to navigate the road at night.

RIDOT's putting reflectors along the edges of major highways and along curves and exits to help guide drivers at night.

The reflectors are going on top of small posts and concrete barriers to reflect light from vehicle headlights.

The reflectors will pop up along I-95 from exit 8 to the Massachusetts boarder, along Route 138 from North Kingstown to the Pell Bridge and along the East Shore Expressway.

They should all be up by late Fall.
