Notes

RI 1A should not be confused with US 1A. In Rhode Island, RI 1A exists in segments between Westerly and North Kingstown. The segment north of North Kingstown, which begins in Warwick, is designated as US 1A. Not helping matters is the presence of incorrect signs on both routes, marking RI 1A as US 1A and US 1A as RI 1A.

In southern Rhode Island, much of US 1 consists of a divided highway with no direct access across; cross traffic must turn right and use a U-turn ramp in the median. Several of the sections of RI 1A end at US 1 in this manner; the northernmost one crosses US 1 like this. Both of these cases can be considered short multiplexes.

A u-turn in driving refers to performing a 180 degree rotation in order to reverse your direction. ... On an expressway, motorway, or autobahn, the median (North American English) or central reservation (British English) is the strip of grass or the wall which separates opposing lanes of traffic. ...
