Notes

Until the summer of 2004, RI 108 turned off of Kingstown Road (the State-maintained route) in Peace Dale, following Kersey Road and North Road and bypassing the Peace Dale Rotary. However, most maps showed RI 108 staying on Kingstown Road. However, new signage was installed in 2004 that puts RI 108 on Kingstown Road through Peace Dale. The routing on Kersey and North Roads may have been done to avoid low clearances where the Narragansett Pier Railroad used to cross over Kingstown Road twice. Those overpasses have been torn down, and a bike path now crosses RI 108 twice within a quarter mile.
