DOT gets out the broom tonight on metro area highways
It's spring cleaning time for the state Department of Transportation.
Tonight, the DOT will sweep sand leftover from winter storm operations from highways in the Providence metropolitan area, between 9 o'clock and 7 a.m.
Motorists on I-95, I-195, Route 6 and Route 146 may encounter a moving operation of road sweepers and accompanying vehicles, the DOT says. Various lanes and exit ramps may be closed briefly as the moving operation passes.
DOT urges drivers to slow down and take care if they encounter sweepers.
The limits of the sweeping operations are:
- I-95 North and South from Exit 11 (I-295) in Warwick to the Massachusetts state line.
- I-195 East and West from I-95 to the Massachusetts state line.
- Route 6 East and West from I-95 to I-295.
- Route 146 North and South from I-95 to Route 116 exit (Ashton, Albion) in Lincoln.
DOT will also provide information on sweeping operations on its Web site, at www.tmc.state.ri.us/traveladvisories.asp, on electronic message boards, the Highway Advisory Radio system (1630 AM) and 511.
