Subway Escalator Construction Reroutes Your Walk, Starting Monday


Yesterday afternoon, RIOC released a notice that the subway escalator construction, now underway, requires some foot traffic detours. They start on Monday and are limited to overnight hours.

An aerial map shows the work zone and where you can safely walk from 9:00 p.m. until 5:30 a.m. during construction. The Red Bus stop will be temporarily moved south for boarding before passing the construction site.

No change in traffic patterns.

  1. 11/14/2022 through 11/19/2022 from 9:00 PM to 5:30 AM
  2. 11/21/2022 through 11/23/2022 from 9:00 PM to 5:30 AM
  3. 11/28/2022 through 12/03/2022 from 9:00 PM to 5:30 AM

Although the work continues through December, weekends are not affected. There was no indication of extra security during the late-night detour around the station.

Note: RIOC’s announcement refers to a “Riverwalk Plaza.” There is no such location, but the aerial view suggests they meant Riverwalk Commons.
