Warning, commuters: Gridlock in Warren
Commuters bound for Route 195, Route 6 and points north and east of Warren, be careful: A traffic accident on Market Street just before 8 a.m. has caused a traffic nightmare. Police officers are at the scene of a relatively benign four-car fender bender near the Country Inn on Market Street; while the accident does not appear major, there has been a major impact on northbound traffic. The north lane heading toward Swansea and Route 6 is backed up as far as Arlington Avenue and the S-curve near Franklin Street. Commuters who usually take Market Street on their way to work might want to find an alternate route, such as Route 103 or Route 114 through Barrington.
