|I-93 Southbound Traffic Shift In Windham For 1.5 Miles
To Allow For Reconstruction Of Existing Lanes
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces a 1.5-mile section of I-93 southbound in Windham will be shifted onto a newly paved alignment. This traffic shift will begin just above of the southbound weigh station and end before the Exit 3 ramps. The change will take place during the night on Friday, October 8.
This work will allow the next phase of the project to begin, which will involve the reconstruction of the existing southbound lanes near the weigh station.
Motorists using I-93 southbound in this area during nighttime hours can expect minor delays as traffic is reduced to one lane through the work zone for several nights to reset concrete barrier for the new traffic pattern. Weather dependent, lane closures will be effect between 7:00 PM and 5:00 AM. The Exit 3 on and off ramps will not be impacted by the lane closures.
This construction work is part of the ongoing Salem-Manchester I-93 rebuilding and widening project. The general contractor for this segment of the project is George Cairns and Sons, of Windham, New Hampshire.
