The new exit numbers for I-195; RI 10; and RI 37 have been posted to the RI DOT site.
http://www.dot.ri.gov/projects/exitnumbers/index.php

The I-195 renumbering begins on 12/2/19.

Unlike the current fudging and "exceptions for short distance roads" in Massachusetts, RI is going into the alphabet soup.

Too bad they are not starting the I-95 and RI 24 renumbering now as well. Hopefully 'in 2020' will not be until next December.

And they go the Caltrans shite way of not skipping letters for partial interchanges. So Gano Street is 1A eastbound but 1D westbound.

https://ajot.com/news/ridot-continuing-highway-mile-marker-numbering-program

On the last line in those posts, it says, "Next spring, RIDOT will renumber Route 24 from the Massachusetts line in Tiverton to West Main Road in Portsmouth." So, I guess that I-95 will be the last major highway in Rhode Island to switch to mile-based exits as they are saving the big one for last?

So I guess this means US 6 and RI 138 won't be getting numbers.

We want to address this in the MUTCD, but obviously that won't be until the next edition.

There are some states that would actually number those exits.

I never imagined the Henderson getting numbers, but 6 and 138 have a few exits each and are major connections to Providence and Newport, respectively.  If 6 were to get numbers, youd have:

Exit 15 (WB ONLY): I-295 SOUTH (no # for NB 295 as it is part of I-295 c/d road)
Exit 16: RI 5 Atwells Ave
Exit 17 (WB ONLY) US 6A Providence Ave
Exit 18: RI 128 Killingly St
Exit 19: US 6A WEST Hartford Ave/Olneyville (US 6A signage WB only)
Exit 20A (20 WB): RI 10 SOUTH
Exit 20B (EB ONLY): Broadway
Exit 21A (EB) Memorial Blvd (WB Exit is part of I-95 interchange)
Exit 21B (EB ONLY) I-95 NORTH (no # for SB as it is mainline US 6)

And for 138

Exit 23 (WB ONLY): US 1 NORTH (1 South ramp is 138 mainline)
Exit 25: RI 1A
Exit 27: Helm St (EB) / Beacon Ave (WB)
Exit 29: Coanicus Ave (EB) / East Shore Rd (WB)
Exit 32: RI 238 Downtown Newport (EB) / RI 138A SOUTH (WB)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstate_95_in_Rhode_Island
Id take that list  with a grain of salt, as RIDOT has yet to post them on the website. Only differences from my list:

I have Exit 5 as 4 (think RI is a round down state)

The Exit 28s need some consistency.  28A should be I-295 on the NB side and the RI 113/I-295 complex SB.  28B should be for RI 113 EAST on both sides.

Slight fudging on the RI 37 numbers to avoid an alphabet city.  I had RI 37 as 31 A/B and Jefferson Blvd as 31C.

The 36s SB should be reversed for consistency (see I-84/I-691 in CT) with 36A for I-195/US 6 and 36B for Eddy St (Point St NB).  That way, I-195/US 6, a major interchange, has the same number in both directions.

I have the 146s as 38A and Branch Ave as 38B.  My US 1/RI 126 exits are 39 A/B NB and 39 SB.  I have RI 122 (NB only) as Exit 40, to create less of an alphabet city at 41 so US 1/RI 15 becomes 41A and RI 114 becomes 41B Northbound.

Early this afternoon RIDOT issued the following announcement on their Twitter account:
"We have decided to postpone the renumbering of I-195 to next month, weather permitting.

12:30 PM - 5 Dec 2019"

There's a sign on 37 EB between 295 and RI 2 which says exit numbers changing Fall 2019.  Clearly didn't happen.  And yikes there's a lot of alphabet soup on 37.  Would have just changed Pontiac Ave. to 2C and moved the numbers for 95/1 down one.  Considering the west end is at Phenix Ave and not 295, can fudge the numbers a little bit through there.

Also noticed last week there's new BGS up at the 146-146A split going NB.  The 146A sign no longer references Park Square, now is North Smithfield.  And hopefully soon we'll get rid of the BGS with commas on 146.

RIDOT has the updated the information on its Exit Renumbering Project website adding new exit number information about RI 24 (the project will involve replacing the signs as well as changing numbers) and stating that I-95 exits will be renumbered by late 2020. Only Exits 5 and 6 will be changed for RI 24, Exit 5 will become 4 and Exit 6 will become 5. Therefore, because there is no Exit 4 under the current system, the exits looks more sequential now than they did before.

Though it appears the exit renumbering project has not started after it's December postponement, RIDOT's traffic incident notification page doesn't seem to have gotten the message. It's already using the future exit numbers. Saw a notice earlier today for a lane closed on RI 37 at Pontiac Ave. which they said was Exit 1E, the current number is 3.

RIDOT's Traffic Advisory page listings for next week indicate that work on exit renumbering will start Tuesday night not only on I-195 but on RI 10 and RI 37 too. Also sign work is starting again along RI 146. Also the Exit Renumbering Project website has been taken offline temporarily, presumably to update the page's information.

Once these routes have their exits renumbered, will Rhode Island's sequential-to-mileage-based exit conversion be completed?

The final phase is still only tentatively scheduled, as noted in the press release.

The final highway to be done, I-95 from the Connecticut border in Hopkinton to the Massachusetts border in Pawtucket, is tentatively scheduled to be renumbered in late 2020.

Work started last night at the western end of I-195 moving east. Here's a traffic camera image showing the new exit number tabs and yellow old exit tabs above them for former Exits 2, 4 and 5 (and the removal of the 'No Exit 1' sign on the right support post):


Here's a media report with more photos:

Ironically, there will STILL be No Exit 3.  Even if they had left the sign up in error, it would technically be correct!

Former exits 7/8 are about 3 miles from I-95.  I would have numbered the exits as follows:

Eastbound:
1 - Gano St
2A - Riverside/Veterans Memorial Parkway
2B - US 44 East
2C - Rte. 103
2D - Broadway (former exit 6)
3A - Rte. 114 South
3B - US 6 East

Westbound:
Would keep it the same, since that "calibrates" the Gano St exit number as 1 in both directions.

I took a quick road trip down to RI last Sunday to check out progress on exit renumbering. It appeared that I-195 was almost complete. Here is one of the photos taken on I-195 East:


I also checked out the exit numbering on RI 146. For the section where signs have not been replaced yet, they have placed small green 'Exit #' signs on the current overhead sign posts at each exit ramp:


The rest of the I-195, and the RI 146 photos I have posted so far, can be found on the gallery section of my New England Exit Renumbering site: http://www.malmeroads.net/mass21c/neexitrenumbering.html
