As of 7PM Thursday October 24, 2019 , due to water main construction, the section of Frenchtown Road between RT2 (South County Trail) and Adirondack Drive will be closed to all motor vehicle traffic until @4 AM Friday morning. There will be detour signage in place directing all Frenchtown Road traffic to use either Middle Rd or South Rd. The work will again take place at night to minimize the effect on motorists, Frenchtown School, and the EG Fire Station. The road will be opened to traffic as soon as the work is complete.
Frenchtown School and the adjacent neighborhoods can be accessed by using the western side of Frenchtown Rd accessible from Tillinghast Rd. That (red) section of Frenchtown Rd from Rt2 to Adirondack Rd will only be accessible by the residents living in the houses on either side of the construction.
The actual work will take place between 874 and 875 Frenchtown Rd. 874 Frenchtown and lower numbers can access their homes from RT2 after speaking with the detail officers. 875 Frenchtown and higher numbers can access their homes from the west side of Frenchtown Rd.
On Friday morning, the road should be open to motor vehicle traffic. There will be closures for paving, but the road is expected to be fully open by 4 AM. Detour map is below.
Any questions may be directed to the East Greenwich Police Dept. at (401)884-2244.
