While MassDOT has backed off plans for renumbering it's exits to milepost based numbers, it appears RI is going ahead. There is an advertisement for a project to renumber I-295 and 'I-99' listed on their Project bid webpage with the winning bid to be announced August 25: http://www.dot.ri.gov/contracting/bids/index.php

Route 146, which does not have any exit numbers, will begin getting them starting next year.

The DOT has not finalized when and in what order the state’s other limited-access highways will get new numbers, but the entire project is expected to be finished by 2020, said agency spokesman Charles St. Martin.

The other highways being renumbered are: Routes 95, 195, 4, 10, 24, 37, 78, 403 and the T.F. Green Airport Connector.

Route 6 and Route 138 are also limited access but will remain numberless. St. Martin said this was because the roads include long sections without exits that would make the exits begin at confusingly high numbers.

Exits less than one mile apart will be given letter designations along with their new mile numbers.

Code: [Select]
Old label New Label
1 1A
2 1B
3 3
4 6 [collision]
5 7 [collision]
6 9 [collision]
6C 9C
7 12
8 15
9 18
10 20
11 22
