JAMESTOWN, R.I. (AP) - The high-speed tolling lanes for the Pell Bridge are scheduled to be closed for a few weeks so crews can update the tolling equipment.

The Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority says the open road tolling lanes are expected to be closed from Monday until Wednesday, April 13.

It says drivers should expect delays during the morning and evening commutes during that period.

The authority says the new equipment is expected to more accurately read E-ZPass transponders and license plates.

The concrete road will also be replaced.
