PROVIDENCE, R.I (WLNE) – The Rhode Island Department of Transportation is advising drivers to use extra caution on Rhode Island roadways Saturday in anticipation of flash freezing.

Roadways wet with rain are expected to freeze as rain subsides and temperatures drop below freezing Saturday afternoon, making caution necessary when traveling.

RIDOT maintenance crews will be working to treat roads as temperatures drop, and warn drivers to reduce their speeds and be wary of icy road conditions.
