At the northernmost point, Portsmouth connects to Bristol and Tiverton via two bridges — the Mount Hope Bridge (Route 114) and the Sakonnet River Bridge (Route 24). Travelling south towards Middletown, the two main roads are Route 114 and Route 138. Each travels parallel to each other until connecting in downtown Newport.
