4 NORTH PROVIDENCE JULY 11-17, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE | NORTH PROVIDENCE EDITION The exits, which will be numbered Exit 10 for both Route 295 north and south drivers when the black cover- ings come off the signs, are being paid for through $3 million from the state and another $3 million from Citizens Bank, which is nearing completion on its new corporate campus just off the highway. The opening of the new exits is expected to have a significant impact on local traffic patterns. Residents along Greenville Avenue have had a much smoother ride of late, after repaving was done as part of the final phase of a Narragansett Bay Commission pipe project, which coincides with the addition of the cor- porate campus. Representatives for Citizens Bank couldn't be reached for comment this week. Polisena said these are the first exit ramps "I've ever owned," and he doesn't intend on the town accepting them until a "punch list" of items is complete. "As soon as the punch list is done, we'll take it from Citizens and then give it to the state," he said. Among the items still remaining to be done early this week were the installation of chatter strips along the edge of the road and the painting of new lines, said Polisena. In a way, he said, the town is "being held hostage" by some last items still not being done, but he said he won't take the exits and then be forced to try to have issues corrected later. The state must first sign off that everything's completed, he said. Pettengill said that since RIDOT is not the entity responsible for complet- ing all certifications, but rather the one making sure everything is completed, "we are not in a position to issue com- pletion dates."
