Greenville Avenue Closure to Begin Monday, April 10

The Narragansett Bay Commission’s sewer construction in Greenville Avenue in Johnston will begin on Monday, April 10, weather permitting, lasting until November 2017. During the construction period, Greenville Avenue will be open to local traffic only. The project will add 7,000 linear feet of new sewer from Salina Avenue to approximately 1,000 feet west of I-295 and will upgrade water service in the area.

Electronic message boards and detour signs will direct traffic to alternate routes. A police traffic detail will and NBC’s inspectors will be on site during all working hours.

In order to minimize construction duration and limit disruption, the Town of Johnston has approved extended working hours from 7AM to 10PM Monday – Saturday. There will be no blasting or mechanical rock removal after 5PM.

Greenville Avenue will be open only to:
• Local residents on Greenville Avenue and side streets
• Schools buses, emergency vehicles, mail carriers, and trash/recycling collection
• Access to driveways will be maintained
