The Rhode Island Department of Transportation will be working in the roadway on Post Road from Bruster Drive and Austin Road. We will be constructing a new underground drainage system running down the corridor and an underground stormwater treatment system placed on adjacent land. Crews will have to take lanes at times when in the roadway. Residents abutting the state land between Essex Rd. & Bruster Drive will see tree clearing and earthwork beginning in May to begin construction. In replacement of the trees being excavated in order to perform this work, a grass field, enclosed by fencing will now sit in between the two neighborhoods.
When is it happening?
Construction will begin with crews in the roadway at the beginning of this summer. This project is estimated to be complete in the spring time of 2023.
