The next stage of the Pawtucket Avenue Bridge replacement project in East Providence will take place this weekend.

The bridge will be closed to all traffic at 7 p.m. Friday and through the weekend so crews can demolish the remaining parts of the bridge.

Early Monday morning, traffic will be shifted to the new half of the bridge, which RIDOT built over the last several weeks.

Traffic on Pawtucket Avenue will be directed to follow a signed detour using Grosvenor Avenue, Broadway and Warren Avenue.

The ramp to Interstate 195 west, located just north of the bridge, will be closed.
