US Route 3 Over the F.E. Everett Turnpike
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces work is anticipated to resume, weather permitting, on Monday, March 25, 2013 on the replacement of the US Route 3 bridge over the F. E. Everett Turnpike in Bedford.
Work to be completed includes removal of the existing bridge, and ledge slope work that will involve blasting, curb installation, islands, sidewalks, and final paving and pavement markings.
The bridge demolition and ledge work will require lane closures and State Police rolling road blocks on the Everett Turnpike during off peak hours for several weeks.
E.D. Swett, Inc. of Concord, New Hampshire is the general contractor for the $11.5 million "design build" project, which has a scheduled completion date of July 4, 2013.
