PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The state is working to improve roadways, intersections and bridges along Route 138 in southern Rhode Island.

The state Department of Transportation says it finished a $1.1 million project to resurface about one and a half miles on Route 138 in the South Kingstown villages of Kingston and West Kingston.

Transportation officials and U.S. Sen. Jack Reed, a Rhode Island Democrat, marked the completion Friday. DOT says the project finished two weeks early and on budget.

DOT says $28 million in improvements are planned for Route 138 in South County.

DOT Director Peter Alviti says thousands of people use the road daily and it’s important that the roadways create a positive first impression for the state.

Reed helped secure $12 million in federal funds for improvements along Route 138.
