Construction of RI toll gantries to begin
Construction of the new truck toll gantries begins next week.
The first two will be built just north of exit 2 on Interstate 95 in the Hopkinton area and about 3 miles south of exit 5 near the Exeter-Richmond line.
There will be lane closures in those areas next week as the vertical supports for the gantries are installed.
The state Department of Transportation said about a month of testing will follow installation of the gantries.
