The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) announced Friday that it is scheduled to close a section of the Coventry Greenway in Coventry on Monday, August 20, 2012. The path will be closed to all users from Station Street to the area of Town Farm Road, where the path transitions to an undeveloped trail.

This section of the path is scheduled to be closed until the Summer of 2013.  It will likely come as no surprise, but no formal detour will be posted during the closure.  Do we have anyone in the area (or familiar with the area) that would be willing to provide us with details about an appropriate detour so we can post it for our readers?

    What' further complicates this is the closure of Laurel Avenue bridge, but you will be able, apparently, to get off WSBP at Station Street (or Battey Ave or Holden Street), and ride Rt-117 (Main Street), which is reasonably bikeable along most of it wherever only 1 lane in each direction with a wide shoulder.
