|New Southbound On-Ramp To Open On I-93 At Exit 3 In Windham
Southbound On-Ramp Night Work On Sunday (11/6)
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation announces the opening of the new interim southbound on-ramp on Interstate 93 at Exit 3 in Windham. This change will take place during the night on Sunday, November 6, 2011. The existing on-ramp will be paved and extended to bring traffic onto the two-mile section of recently completed highway. This new traffic pattern improves the safety and capacity of the interchange, and removes one "Red List" bridge from service.
Southbound on-ramp traffic will be detoured between the hours of 7:00 pm and 5:00 am on Sunday night. Motorists on NH Route 111 seeking to go south on I-93 will be directed to take I-93 northbound and reverse direction at Exit 4.
Additional nighttime construction work will be taking place near the southbound weigh station on I-93. Motorists traveling south in this area during the nighttime hours can expect minor delays as traffic is reduced to one lane through the work zone. Weather dependent, lane closures will be between 7:00 pm and 5:00 am from Monday (11/7) through Thursday (11/10) nights.
This project is part of the construction of a new I-93 roadway in the vicinity of Exit 3. George Cairns of Windham, New Hampshire is the general contractor for the $26 million project, which is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2011.
