The I-195 Relocation Project, known as the Iway, is the largest project the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) has built since the construction of the Interstate system. It is a transformative project - quite literally changing the landscape in Providence - addressing a wide range of issues including safety, replacing aging infrastructure, lessening traffic congestion and bolstering economic development.
The Iway is nearing completion. All new highway construction and old highway demolition is complete. One of the final projects will be the rebuilding of city streets near the old highway corridor and development of parks along the Providence River. RIDOT also will be involved in the development of park areas and new pedestrian bridge on the granite footings of the old Providence River Bridge.
The Rhode Island Department of Transportation has implemented a new high-tech system to monitor, assess and respond to roadway emergencies. The new system manages traffic on Rhode Island's major interstates (I-95, I-195, and I-295) as well as many major local routes throughout the state (Route 146, Route 4, Route 6, and Route 10.)
