Until the 1960s, RI 114 ended at the intersection of Pine Swamp Road and Diamond Hill Road in Cumberland. Present-day RI 114 from that point west to RI 122 in Woonsocket, Rhode Island was given the RI 142 and later the RI 11 designation. When RI 11 became RI 121 in the 1960s, RI 121's terminus was cut back to the same intersection where RI 114 originally ended, and the route west to Woonsocket became RI 114. The 1960s, or The Sixties, in its most obvious sense refers to the decade between 1960 and 1969, but the expression has taken on a wider meaning over the past twenty years. ...

In 2000, part of RI 114 northbound south of downtown Pawtucket was re-routed. The old alignment left Prospect Street at Pond Street, went east along Pond Street to Summit Street, north on Summit Street (this turn onto Summit is still signed as of July 2005) and re-joined RI 114 southbound at the corner of Summit Street and Division Street.

Notes

  1. ^  In Pawtucket, RI 114 has a wrong-way multiplex with itself on a one-way road - a block of Broadway (pointing compass south) between Exchange Street and Cottage Street. This means that both the northbound and southbound directions of RI 114 travel the same direction on the same road. At the intersection with Cottage Street, the northbound direction stays straight on Broadway while the southbound direction makes a left turn onto Cottage Street. Though the routing seems odd by conventional thinking, it is well-defined in the 2001 edition of the Pavement Log kept by the Rhode Island Department of Transportation. As of July 2005 the signage in the vicinity is very spotty and offers no evidence to dispute the pavement log and, in some cases, the little signage that does exist actually seems to support it. On the other hand, Pawtucket's Department of Public Works has RI 114 northbound using Exchange Street, which is shorter and matches the southbound direction. (Pawtucket's log also shows the old northbound alignment - see above.) With the northbound change to Exchange, the entry above would read as follows:
    • Prospect Street, [Prospect Street, School Street, Main Street, Walcott Street] (Beverage Hill Avenue, School Street, Division Street, Summit Street), Walcott Street, Underwood Street, [Cottage Street, Exchange Street] (Cottage Street, Broadway), Exchange Street and Broad Street
  2. ^ In the 1990s or early 2000s, RI 114 was re-aligned in Cumberland, Rhode Island so that it now uses Blackstone Street to get between Broad Avenue and High Street. Before the re-alignment, RI 114 used to use Dexter Street (RI 123) for that purpose. Signage still exists as of July 2005 at the intersection of Dexter and High streets as evidence of this old alignment. However, a reassurance marker was installed northbound on the old alignment just past RI 123 in 2005. Drivers in either direction on RI 114 will go as shown above, but the old alignment is still having signs installed:
    • Broad Avenue, Dexter Street, High Street, Diamond Hill Road and Pine Swamp Road
  3. ^ For many years, RI 114 used Social Street (RI 126) in Woonsocket to get between Diamond Hill Road and Privilege Street. New signage installed in 2003 by RIDOT now takes RI 114 one block further west so that it now uses Rathbun Street to make that jog rather than Social Street. However, no sign was installed on RI 114 southbound to turn left at Rathbun, and the old sign at Social (RI 126) has not been removed. Thus southbound traffic is still directed to turn left onto Social without a traffic signal, and the new sign for southbound traffic pointing right onto Diamond Hill from Social is not seen by RI 114 traffic. Through traffic on RI 114 will thus go as follows:
    • Diamond Hill Road, [Diamond Hill Road, Rathbun Street] (Social Street, Privilege Street), Privilege Street and Winter Street
