|Paving Work In Alton-Wolfeboro And Henniker-Bradford
Preservation Project On 8 Miles Of NH 28 And 8.5 Miles Of NH 114
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation announces pavement preservation projects are getting underway this week on sections of NH Route 28 in Alton and Wolfeboro, and NH Route 114 in Henniker and Bradford.
The intent of this work is to extend the service life of the travel surfaces and reduce the need for more extensive and expensive repairs in the future. The two sections of roadway are currently in good condition, and this combined project is aimed at preserving this good condition.
The NH 28 work involves microsurfacing on 8 miles, starting just north of Hannaford Drive in Alton, and continuing north to 250 feet north of the Wolfeboro town line. Also included in the contract is microsurfacing and paving in Henniker and Bradford, starting at the northerly abutment of the bridge over US 202/NH 9 and continuing north for 8.5 miles to NH Route 103.
Traffic control for both segments will include alternating one-way traffic using flaggers.
New York Bituminous Products Corp., of Chester, New York is the contractor for the $938,000 project, which is scheduled to be completed by late summer 2011.
