$17 Million Roadway Improvement Project Information


Please be advised that on Thursday, July 7, 2016, Cardi Corp. will be PAVING Mettatuxet Road (from Boston Neck Road to just short of Sumac Trail). Please make appropriate accommodations to park on adjacent side streets that will enable you to get out of Mettaxet while work is going on, especially if you know you need to go out that day. There will be lots of construction vehicles in the work zone.

After asphalt is put down there will be no vehicle traffic allowed on the new pavement for approximately 2 hrs.  Upon return home later in the day, please be prepared for the possibility of still having to park on side streets while the asphalt is still curing.  We apologize for any inconvenience, even though it is only temporary.

During construction you should expect:
  • Vehicular access to your property may be restricted between the hours of 7am and 4pm as work progresses
  • DPW will station flaggers to provide direction and traffic control during the work day
  • If access to your property is restricted during the work day, you may need to park you vehicle at an alternate location
  • The DPW and the contractors will work to minimize the disruption and inconvenience caused by the project and will be available to answer your questions and address your concerns
Following repaving, no permits will be issued for opening, cuts or excavations in the above listed roadways for a period of three (3) years per Chapter 66, Section 89 of the Town of Narragansett Code of Ordinances.
