DERRY — State transportation officials are seeking public comment on the proposed design for a new Exit 4A off Interstate 93 in Derry later this month.
The public meeting is set for Thursday, May 24, at the West Running Brook Middle School gymnasium starting at 6:30 p.m.
State officials said the project could have an impact on historic and cultural resources and those with concerns can become consulting parties to this project. The state’s 10-year highway program calls for construction to start on this project in 2019 and for it to be completed in 2022.
The estimated cost is about $57 million, according to state officials.
Derry has been making zoning changes in anticipation of the project.
The plan is to construct a new diamond interchange on I-93 in Londonderry, approximately 1 mile north of the present-day Exit 4, to provide access to the east side of the highway.
Additionally, crews would erect a mile-long connecting road from the interchange to Folsom Road, near the intersection of North High Street and Madden Road. Derry would subsequently upgrade Tsienneto Road as part of the project.
The proposed corridor would run for slightly more than 3 miles and, town officials have said, will reduce congestion and improve safety while also promoting the economic vitality of the region.
