CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | JUNE 6-12, 2019 CUMBERLAND 7 CUMBERLAND – Representatives from the Rhode Island Department of Transportation previously said that the realignment of the Chapel Four Corners intersec- tion would be done first as part of a double roundabout project, but they're now saying the work will run simultaneously with the rest of the traffic-calming initiative. The work to realign the Chapel intersection was originally pegged to begin last year, but RIDOT spokesman Charles St. Martin now says it's still a way off. "We are doing extensive utility work from Chapel Four Corners to the site of the projected round- abouts (at Route 295)," he said. "Without this work, we cannot put in the new light (at Chapel). Once the utility work is complete, we will work simultaneously along the entire project." What people are currently seeing "across the full spectrum" of this intersection safety improvement project is the utility work, said St. Martin. "Along with the new signal, the most significant traffic change in the area for motorists will be the two roundabouts, which will be under construction this year," he said. RIDOT this week put out a flier alerting travelers about construc- tion, which, according to St. Martin, for now means "massive utility work." The majority of work in 2019, stated the flier from RIDOT, will center on the new roundabouts. Two-way construction will be in place during daytime construction, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Work will also be done during the evening and overnight hours, 7:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. Chapel realignment won't happen before roundabout work By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor ethan@valleybreeze.com The Cumberland Town Employees Union presents a $500 scholarship to TYE SKELDON, center.
