Announcements and Public Information
High Risk Rural Road Improvements by the RI Department of Transportation
Many residents have asked about improvements that started recently on some Town Roads. Specifically, double yellow center lines have or will be painted on Trimtown Road, Bungy Road, Rocky Hill Road, the north segment of Gleaner Chapel Road, Westcott Road and Central Avenue. This work was designed and is being paid for by RIDOT; there is no Scituate tax money involved. The pavement markings also include white edge lines.
The project scope involves placing secondary stop signs at several (20) intersections; there will be no new stop sign locations. At 4 various locations, “curve warning” signs will be installed.
This RIDOT project was reviewed by the Town last year and we have agreed to maintain the improvements, once installed.
