|Traffic Shifts At I-95 Pavement And Bridge Project In Portsmouth
To Allow For The Completion Of The Rehabilitation Of Three Bridges
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces planned traffic shifts are scheduled to take place the week of April 12, 2010 on a section of Interstate 95 in Portsmouth between the High Level Bridge and Exit 6. These traffic shifts, both northbound and southbound from the right side shoulders towards the median, will allow for the completion of bridge rehabilitation work.
This project involves pavement resurfacing, rehabilitation of the I-95 bridge decks over Woodbury Avenue, Maplewood Avenue, and Market Street, guardrail replacement and drainage improvements.
The Exit 7 northbound off-ramp and southbound on-ramp ramps will remain closed to traffic until May 27, 2010. Traffic seeking to use the Exit 7 ramps can detour to Exit 5 to the US Route 1 Bypass onto Market Street via a temporary signalized intersection near the USS Albacore.
Motorists are urged to drive carefully through the work zone and obey the temporary posted speed limit of 45 MPH.
Pike Industries of Belmont, New Hampshire is the general contractor for the $4.78 million contract, which has a final completion date of August 27, 2010.
