Route 122 Route 126

Route 123 is a state highway running 7.7 miles (12.4 km) in the U.S. state of Rhode Island.

Route description[edit]

Route 123 begins at an intersection with Route 116, the George Washington Highway, northeast of North Central State Airport in Lincoln. Carrying the name Albion Road, Route 123 skirts the east side of the airport on a two-lane road, meeting an intersection with Jenckes Hill Road, which the route begins to follow eastward from the airport and sends the road cutting through Smithfield. The road passes through a heavily wooded suburban area, intersecting Route 246 and interchanging with Route 146 directly after.

Route 123 then takes on the name of Breakneck Hill Road and winds around its namesake hill on a curvy alignment. Its name changes again to Great Road after an intersection with East Butterfly Way, and the road serves mostly residences before entering Lincoln. It passes through town as Front Street, intersecting Route 126 within the town. At the far east side of town, the route intersects Route 122 on Lonsdale Avenue, and its name changes to John Street before it bridges the Blackstone River.

Just across the Blackstone River, Route 123 splits into a one-way pair of Chambers Street westbound and John Street eastbound, entering Valley Falls and intersecting Broad Street, where the route turns north. The road bridges a railroad alignment within town before intersecting Dexter Street, and the road turns eastward once more, intersecting Route 114's High Street the next block over. Route 123 and Dexter Street continue east over a creek and exits the state, becoming Massachusetts Route 123, which continues eastward through eastern Massachusetts.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Providence County.
