Arctic Circulation Improvements


West Warwick, RI.
Owner: Town of West Warwick, RI

The Town of West Warwick desired to restore two-way traffic operations on the main street through its Arctic business district and the town's government center, an area that had been served by a one-way traffic circulator for many years. GRA was selected by the West Warwick Planning Department for the initial Phase I of the Arctic Circulation Improvements and the subsequent Phase II. Under contract with the Town, GRA conducted the necessary traffic and design studies, produced a report, coordinated with and obtained approvals from the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT), conducted final design, and prepared plans, specifications and estimates to RIDOT standards. Both phases of the project were constructed by RIDOT, and two-way traffic has been restored to the area. This project included curb and sidewalks, storm drainage modifications and traffic calming measures.
