There’s a saying in public radio, that our stories create “driveway moments.” That’s when you pull into your driveway and sit in your car to hear a story to the end. Well, if you live along Route 114 in Bristol, there’s a good chance you’re having a different kind of “driveway moment” – when you can’t get out of your driveway because there’s so much traffic. As part of our series One Square Mile, Catherine Welch checks in finds out how these Bristolians make it out of the driveway and on to their destinations.
Commuters who use Route 114 may notice some new information as of Wednesday. The Rhode Island Department of Transportation has put up an electronic message board on Route 114 North in East Providence. The sign provides travel time estimates to both I-95 and T. F. Green Airport.
