Driving down I-95 over the weekend, I noticed several new pieces of signage on I-95 SB in Providence between Exits 23-22.  The new signage is linked to the Providence River Viaduct replacement.  Most notable about the signage for Exits 22C-B-A was RI's first "new generation" arrow-per-lane BGS.  I wonder if there will be similar APL signage NB for Exit 23 where RI 146 branches off...

Also, all the new signage for SB Exits 23-22 is on right-hand supports.  All BGS' were removed from the bridges.

They recently installed mile markers on 146

Interestingly, the numbers go up from both ends.  Northbound markers start at 0 in Providence and go up heading towards Mass., southbound markers start at 0 at the state line, and go up heading towards I-95.

What a RIDOTy thing to do.

:banghead: Groan...only to remove them all and replace them, wasting more $$ RIDOT doesn't have.  There was talk of a MUCH NEEDED Rte 146 sign-replacement for 2016, but I'm unaware if any official bids went out.  They will likely number the exits (finally) during the replacement as they did during the RI 10 replacement.

Mileage based numbers perhaps? (Assuming they fix the mile-markers)
