$17 Million Roadway Improvement Project Information

As part of the continuing Phase 2 of the Narragansett Roadway Improvement Program, the Town is preparing to reconstruct the following roads:

Channing Road, Checkerberry Road, Choctaw Trail, Inkberry Trail, Juniper Trail, Leatherleaf Road, Spice Bush Trail, Wayland Trail, Sumac Trail and Circuit Drive, which is contingent on drainage plan approval.

*Note: Large scale plans for Circuit Drive are available to view in the DPW office.

This work may begin at any time after June 1, 2019. We have NOT yet been notified of the exact dates for the start of construction. Notifications to residents/homeowners will be sent closer to the start of the project, as soon as we are notified by the Contractor.

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.
