Route 24 is a limited-access state highway in the U.S. state of Rhode Island. It runs approximately 8 miles (13 km) from Route 114 in Portsmouth to Massachusetts Route 24 in Fall River, Massachusetts. The layout of Rhode Island's highways effectively make Tiverton and Little Compton isolated from the rest of the state. Because of this, people travelling to this part of the state from the Providence area will often cut through Massachusetts using Interstate 195 and Route 24. This route is often far faster than other routes which stay inside Rhode Island.
Route 24 starts at Route 114 in Portsmouth. It heads northeast and has a short concurrency with Route 138 over the Sakonnet River Bridge to Tiverton. It continues northeast until the border with Fall River, Massachusetts, where it continues as Massachusetts Route 24.
