EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Two Rhode Island bridges have reopened to traffic following a renovation project that was completed a year ahead of schedule.

The Ten Mile River Bridges in East Providence reopened Friday morning. The bridges weren't slated to reopen until late 2013.

The spans carry North Broadway over the Ten Mile River and nearby stream. They were closed last year after inspectors found significant deterioration. Crews completed $2.8 million in repairs that saw the bridges' superstructure completely replaced.

Officials say the work was finished early because the contractor worked on both bridges at the same time.
