|I-93 Mainline Traffic Switch at Exit 5 In Londonderry
Minor Northbound Traffic Delays on Night Of 8/22
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation announces night work associated with the construction of the four new Exit 5 Interstate 93 bridges in Londonderry.
Weather permitting; work to paint lines to switch the Interstate 93 northbound mainline and northbound ramps to a new configuration will take place on the night of Wednesday, August 22, 2012. This night work will take place from approximately 9:00 pm to 3:00 am. It's anticipated that this work will take one night to complete.
This work will require traffic on Interstate 93 northbound to be reduced to one lane. Line painting will accommodate switching I-93 northbound mainline traffic onto two of the newly constructed I-93 southbound barrels. I-93 on and off ramps will also be switched into a new configuration utilizing line striping. State Police rolling roadblocks may be required to complete the traffic switch and line striping operations. This traffic switch will allow the reconstruction of the northbound lanes and bridges on I-93. Minor traffic delays can be expected.
This work is part of the construction of four new I-93 Exit 5 bridges, NH Route 28 reconstruction, and I-93 reconstruction in the Exit 5 area. Severino Trucking. Co., Inc. of Candia, New Hampshire is the general contractor for the $37 million project, which is scheduled for completion in June 2014.
