Atwells Avenue Bridge has Reopened Following Repairs

PROVIDENCE, RI – The Bridge on Atwells Avenue that travels over the Woonasquatucket River near Valley Street has reopened for vehicle and pedestrian traffic today, Monday, January 11, 2016.

The bridge has been closed since January 2015 for repairs from damage sustained during the floods of 2010. According to the Rhode Island Department of Transportation, closing the bridge has allowed repairs to be completed in half the time that would have been required if the bridge had remained open for single lane travel.
