Work begins to renumber I-295 exits in Rhode Island

November 28, 2017 - 6:43 AM

CUMBERLAND, R.I. - Work has begun to start renumbering the exits on Interstate 295 in Rhode Island.

The Rhode Island Department of Transportation began the two-week project on Monday. The first to change was Exit 22 in Cumberland, previously Exit 11. It will continue to have a sign marking it as "Old Exit 11."

The entire I-295 corridor from Warwick through Cumberland is getting new signs as part of a highway renumbering program required by the federal government. The new exit numbers will correspond to mile markers.

The transportation department says the higher-numbered exits will be changed this week, while old exits 1, 2 and 4 will be renumbered in the second week.

Electronic mapping and GPS companies have been told of the change.
