|Traffic Shift On I-89 Southbound At Exit 17 In Lebanon
Diversion Of High Speed Lane To Allow For Bridge Work
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation announces the planned diversion of the Interstate 89 southbound high speed lane near Exit 17 in Lebanon to allow for deck rehabilitation work on the I-89 southbound bridge over the NH recreation/rail trail.
This lane shift, which is expected to occur on or about Friday, April 12, 2013, will divert the I-89 southbound high speed lane just north of Exit 17 onto the northbound barrel, and will then reconnect to southbound just past the Exit 17 off-ramp.
Motorists will need to be aware that if they are in the high speed lane after the split they will not be able to access the Exit 17 off-ramp. Motorists traveling in the low speed lane will be able to access the off-ramp or travel straight through.
This work is part of a pavement and bridge rehabilitation project on four miles of Interstate 89 between Exits 15 and 18 in Enfield and Lebanon. Pike Industries, Inc. of Belmont, Hampshire is the general contractor for the $11.9 million project, which is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2013.
