New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) will close lanes temporarily on I-293 southbound in Manchester near Exit 4 for construction next week.
Weather permitting, I-293 southbound lane closures are scheduled to take place from July 28 to August 1 from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. Interstate 293 southbound will have one open lane at all times.
The temporary nighttime lane closures are to allow for paving operations. Motorcycles should use caution due to temporarily grooved pavement. The work is to create a lane shift that will take place later this month. Electronic message boards and traffic control devices will be in place during closures.
This work is part of the I-293 widening and bridge replacement project and includes the replacement of four “Red Listed” bridges and the rehabilitation of one “Red Listed” bridge at the I-293 Exit 4 Interchange.
The road work includes: construction of a third southbound lane, beginning approximately 150 feet north of the existing northbound on-ramp and continuing approximately 0.6 mile south; Exit 4 ramps reconstruction and pavement rehabilitation; sound wall construction; drainage improvements; water line reconstruction; installation of concrete median barrier; and guardrail improvements.
Severino Trucking Inc., of Candia, New Hampshire is the general contractor for the $26.2 million project, which has a completion date of November 18, 2016.
