EAST PROVIDENCE — The East Providence Veterans Memorial Expressway rededication ceremonies took place Saturday, Nov. 6, and Sunday, Nov. 7, at various sites around the city.

On November 6 at Pierce Memorial Stadium, events featured the formal rededication ceremony, a cannon salute, renditions of the “Star Spangled Banner” and “Taps,” and a meet-and-greet with veterans and military members.

On November 7, events included the dedication of Andrews Brothers' exit off Interstate 195 then a "Visitation" drive-by of EPVME memorial bridge signs between Valley Street and Broadway.

There are four bridges off Warren Avenue under the Veterans' Memorial Parkway and East Shore Expressway ramps. Six cross over north to south as I-195 goes east to west, three are one-way bridges and one bridge is on the Wampanoag Trail. Most of bridges over I-195 have been rebuilt or fortified in recent years and missing memorial signs have been replaced.
