RIDOT says bridge to get fixed by mid-October

September 29, 2013

WOONSOCKET – The state Department of Transportation has begun preparing for the emergency repair of the Hamlet Avenue Bridge steel expansion joint near the intersection of Hamlet, Davison Street and Florence Drive.

The problem involving an upward movement of the metal teeth in the joint was discovered earlier this month by city Highway Superintendent Rick Lambert and reported to the department’s bridge inspection division. The expansion joint on the east side of the steel girder bridge has become misaligned in the past and resulted in repairs to make it passable to vehicles.
