Summer season's over...Ready for a little I-93 night paving?
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) is notifying commuters that cold planing and pavement resurfacing operations will take place overnight on the I-93 Exit 11 on and off ramps at the Hooksett tolls tonight through Wednesday night, weather permitting. The work will require traffic on I-93 to be detoured to the next exit for access to Route 3A. Traffic on Route 3A will also be detoured to access I-93. The detours will be in place from approximately 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Jay Levine, New Hampshire Department of Transportation I-93 coordinating supervisor, said workers continue installing drainage across I-93 north and south through this Friday, part of the new Exit 2 Interchange construction work in Salem. Weather permitting, the work will take place during non-commuter hours, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. on I-93 northbound, and 8 p.m. through 5 a.m. southbound. Traffic on I-93 north and south will be reduced to one lane. This work is part of the $41 million I-93 widening and reconstruction project in the vicinity of Exit 2, handled by George R. Cairns & Sons, Inc. of Windham. Work is expected to continue until 2015.
“They aren’t required to, but their goal is to shift the traffic this year,” Levine said.
R.S. Audley Inc. of Bow secured the $35.1 million contract for the I-93 southbound widening project at Exit 3 in Windham, which includes work at the interchange with Route 111.
Levine and New Hampshire State Police Troop B commander Chris Wagner, whose officers patrol I-93, are pleased with how drivers have handled construction this year.
