11/21/2016 - Willett Ave. Traffic Pattern Change Due to Sewer Repairs

The City of East Providence will be repairing the Willett Avenue sewer pipe between Elinora Street and Harvey Avenue beginning on Monday November 28, 2016.  Willett Avenue will be closed during the repair.  The enclosed plan shows the proposed detour route.  North bound Willett Avenue traffic will detour onto Meadowcrest Drive and turn left onto Burnside, then right onto Willett Avenue.  South bound traffic will detour left onto Burnside, turn right onto Rhodes Avenue and then left onto Willett Avenue.  


Houses located on Willett Avenue between Pearce Avenue and Harvey Avenue should park on the side streets during the time of construction.  The hours of work will be between 7 am and 4 pm.  It is hopeful that the work will take approximately one (1) week to complete but may take up to two weeks, depending on the extent of the repairs.  Police will be located at specified intersections and should be consulted to gain access into the Charlotte Street, Elinora Street, Harvey Avenue and Fenner Avenue neighborhood.  It is required that all cars be parked off-street in the area of the detour.  Temporary no parking signs will be set up on Woodbine Street, Burnside Avenue and Rhodes Avenue.  We thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience during this time of inconvenience.
