Work On Two Aquidneck Island Bridges Could Cause Delays

Mar 20, 2017

The Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority says work on the Mount Hope Bridge and Sakonnet River Bridge could cause some delays.  

The Mount Hope Bridge is expected to begin work Monday with plans of daily lane closures between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. The bridge will undergo steel and concrete work, as well as some general painting.

Meanwhile, removal of the old Sakonnet River Bridge could cause possible bike path closures as work moves forward.
