NORTH SMITHFIELD – The Rhode Island State Traffic Commission has approved a request by the Town to install pedestrian accommodations at the northern entrance to Dowling Village/CVS Pharmacy in North Smithfield.

A recent engineering study conducted because of the Town’s request determined that pedestrian accommodations at the location were necessary given the commercial nature of the area. Since there are sidewalks on both sides of the roadway, pedestrian pushbuttons and signal heads will be installed on both sides of the road from Dowling Village north towards the Park Square intersection. The improvements, pending funding through an ongoing State Traffic Commission contract, are intended to be completed within the next few years.
