current Exit 4 WB becomes Exit 2A, and Exit 5 becomes Exit 2 EB, Exit 2B WB.

Yuck. RIDOT is being a little meticulous here in all the wrong ways.

I mean I get that exit 4 WB is closer to mile 2, but 3/4 are effectively the same interchange, so why not just make that exit 1 both ways? Then you can just make exit 5 exit 2, and not have the mess of it being 2 EB and 2B WB.

The same interchange having a different exit number in each direction is potentially confusion-inducing due to its inconsistency, and RIDOT in their infinite wisdom wants to do this for *both* interchanges on RI 78 when it would be easy to do it for neither. :pan:

Of course, it is RIDOT.

Guess they heard about Cape Cod residents not liking the numbers MassDOT was planning to assign for US 6 (starting at 55) and decided not to do risk the entire project by pushing similar 'illogical' numbers for those routes.

RIDOT has set up its own webpage listing (and mapping) the new I-295 exit numbers:

Also missing RI 146.
RI 146 will be getting its own set of numbers with a signage replacement contract to be let in December. The project will be done in 3 phases. With the first phase new gore signs with the new numbers will be placed at exits not having their signs replaced until the later phases are done.

I just hope they pick a good contractor for the RI 146 signs and use the correct R.I. trailblazer shields for the BGSs.  146 has been the RIDOT stepchild for many, many years.  Inadequate signage, dangerous on-ramps (esp. 116 N to 146 S), broken light towers.  And don't get me started on the Sayles Hill Road signalized intersection!

The one in Mass is in just as important a spot as the one in RI.  In a congested commuter corridor in the suburbs of Worcester.   Both of these lights cause some pretty heinous back-ups in evening rush hour.

The RIDOT website for the Exit Renumbering Project has added this information about I-295, it appears that project will only take 2 weeks:
"I-295 Timeline. The project will proceed from north to south, The contractor will complete renumbering each interchange before moving to the next interchange. The schedule is as follows:

Week of November 27 - Old exits 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11
Week of December 4: Old exits 1, 2 and 4
The Exit 3/Route 37 interchange is located at Mile Marker 3, and will not need to be changed. All schedules are weather dependent and subject to change."

Pretty similar to what I have without an exit 0.  I did not give an exit number to I-95 North since it technically a situation where a duplexes route’s mainline (US 6), briefly joins I-95.

Eastbound

Exit 1: Gano St/India Point
Exit 2A: US 44 East
Exit 2B: RI 103 East
Exit 3A: RI 103/East Providence
Exit 3B: RI 114 South
Exit 4: US 6 East/US 1A North TO RI 114 North

Westbound

Exit 3: TO US 44/RI 103
Exit 2: Gano St/India Point
Exit 1D: US 44 West/ US 1A South
Exit 1C: Eddy St
Exit 1B: Point St
Exit 1A: I-95 South
