Busy season planned for I-93 widening in New Hampshire
The Associated Press
SALEM, N.H. — There's about $162 million in projects planned for construction soon for the widening of Interstate 93 in southern New Hampshire.
Construction is expected to start in April on the projects from Exit 5 in Londonderry through Exit 1 in Salem to the Massachusetts line.
Project leaders tell the Eagle-Tribune there are four major projects between Exits 1 and 5 that will affect motorists this construction season: a highway widening and bridge project at Exit 1 in Salem, interchange reconstruction and related work at Exit 2 in Salem, widening and some road relocation at Exit 3 in Windham, and Exit 5 interchange and Route 28 improvements in Londonderry.
When all expenses such as transit subsidies are included, the $800 million highway widening is the most costly in state history.
Transportation officials said besides the $162 million in projects that are in progress, another $151 million worth are completed. A $39 million northbound project at Exit 3 is expected to be awarded this year.
Drivers will see lane shifts during the season which will be announced through news releases, message boards and postings on the I-93 construction website, RebuildingI93.com.
