CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | OCTOBER 11-17, 2018 CUMBERLAND 3 Chapel reconfiguration may wait until spring Cumberland wall will be kept, moved back CUMBERLAND – Utility crews are continuing their work along Diamond Hill Road's double round- about project, which includes the Chapel Four Corners intersection, but there's no word yet on whether the work will be complete in time to reconfigure the busy intersection before cold weather hits. "The utility relocation that's hap- pening with National Grid needs to be done before that phase of the proj- ect starts," said Charles St. Martin, spokesman for the Rhode Island Department of Transportation. St. Martin said he'll know in a few more weeks whether the work will happen by the end of this year or be scheduled for next spring. RIDOT officials originally said they expected the reconfiguration of the intersection to happen in 2018. National Grid trucks have been seen in the area over the past few weeks as new electric poles have been installed to allow future widen- ing of the road. Planned as part of the widening are new turn lanes at the intersection and a second lane heading from Route 295 to the inter- By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor ethan@valleybreeze.com section of Bear Hill Road and Angell Road. St. Martin also answered a question a number of residents have asked about whether the stone wall with the engraved "Cumberland" next to the Route 295 north exit roundabout will be taken down or moved.
