April 4, 2014 - ANNUAL STREET SWEEPING HAS BEGUN - Warwick Mayor Scott Avedisian said today that Department of Public Works crews have begun the annual street sweeping project, focusing first on main thoroughfares and sidewalks. Due to the volume of sand on the roads from the frequency of snowstorms this winter, it's expected that crews will be clearing the main roads for the next two weeks. Once work on those roads has been completed, crews will begin clearing secondary roads, Avedisian said.

August 23, 2013 - HIGHWAY EXIT IN WARWICK TO CLOSE FOR CONSTRUCTION - The state Department of Transportation will temporarily close Exit 14A (Route 37 East) off of Route 95 North on Sept. 4 as part of a construction project on Route 37 East in Warwick.  Motorists seeking access to Post Road in Warwick are advised to follow the detour via Exit 15 (Jefferson Boulevard), with a left onto Jefferson Boulevard, a right onto Route 95 South and then Exit 14A (Route 37 East). An alternate route is to take Exit 13 (the Airport Connector) to the Post Road exit.

The bridge rehabilitation project on Route 37 East will require extended lane closures. The right lane will be closed between Exit 4B (Route 95 North) and Exit 5A (Post Road) through early December.
