|Night Lane Closures on I-293 at Exit 4 in Manchester
Northbound Lane Restrictions for up to Two Weeks
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces temporary night lane closures are planned on I-293 northbound in Manchester in the vicinity of Exit 4 for construction operations.
Weather permitting, the I-293 northbound lane closures are scheduled to take place each night from Monday, August 11 to Friday, August 15, from 8:00 pm until 6:00 am. If additional time is needed, closures will continue from Monday, August 18 to Friday, August 22, again from 8:00 pm until 6:00 am. Interstate 293 northbound will have one open lane at all times.
The temporary nighttime lane closures are to allow for drainage installation. These drainage improvements are necessary to accommodate the construction of the additional third lane on I-293 southbound. Electronic message boards and traffic control devices will be used to alert and assist motorists during the lane closures.
This work is part of the I-293 widening and bridge replacement project in the vicinity of Exit 4. The project 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.
