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.

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, you’d 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)

Wikipedia has updated the I-95 exit list to reflect the forthcoming conversion:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstate_95_in_Rhode_Island
I’d 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 28’s 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 36’s 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 146’s 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"
