Traffic alert: Rte. 195 west accident causing backups
PROVIDENCE -- If you're heading through parts of the city or onto Route 195 around exit 2 west at this moment, ready yourself for delays.
An accident in the area of exit 2 -- the South Main Street exit -- is causing backups on the highway and may be contributing to traffic holdups in downtown itself.
The accident is in the high-speed lane, state police said, and apparently involved minor injuries. More details of the accident were not clear.
A Providence police sergeant said there have been reports of traffic backups at this hour, though it could be one or a combination of things such as the accident and a concert at Providence Performing Arts Center tonight. Not to mention holiday shoppers at Providence Place mall.
