The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) has permanently closed old left-hand Exit 20 from I-95 South and Exit 20 from I-95 North.

All traffic on I-95 North wishing to access I-195 East will now have to use the Iway (Exit 19). RIDOT opened the new Iway Exit 2, replacing Exit 3, to provide better access to the East Side of Providence and the Wickenden Street area. The ramp now provides access to Gano Street via India Street.

RIDOT will continuously update all information, including maps, on its Web site at Additionally, information on changes will be available by calling 511 and listening to the Highway Advisory Radio System on 1630 AM. Motorists may also call RIDOT’s Customer Service office at 401-222-2450 on weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

John O’Flaherty, Executive Director of CBC commented, “CBC wishes to thank all of our members and sailing friends for their continued patience and support during this transitional period.”

Community Boating Center (CBC) is a non-profit, 501c3 recreational organization offering all members of the community an opportunity to sail. Located in India Point Park, CBC provides outreach, sailing lessons and affordable access to the Providence waterfront. Gifts of cash or property to CBC may be treated as charitable donations for Federal Tax purposes.
