The Department of Transportation will close one of the two eastbound travel lanes and moving it to the right side of the bridge. The current westbound traffic closure toward Federal Hill will remain in place with a detour using Broadway and Dean Street.

RIDOT said it’s repairing bridge joints and making other repairs to the bridge. All lanes are expected to reopen by mid-June.
