Blasting Underway On I-93 at Exit 3 in Windham
Southbound On-Ramp Temporary Closures

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces the beginning of blasting work adjacent to the interim southbound lanes on Interstate 93 at Exit 3 in Windham.  This blasting is necessary to accommodate the new alignment of the northbound off-ramp.

Blasting will take place, as needed, from Monday through Friday between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm from now until the end of July.  State Police rolling road blocks will be used to slow southbound and northbound traffic during blasting operations, resulting in minor delays.   

Southbound on-ramp and NH Route 111 traffic will be temporarily stopped during blasting.  Extended ramp and NH 111 closures may be required to allow crews to safely remove blasted ledge from the roadway, due to its close proximity to the work. 

This work is part of the construction of the final northbound I-93 roadway alignment and Northbound Ramps in the vicinity of Exit 3.  Weaver Bros. Construction of Bow, New Hampshire is the general contractor for the $32.2 million project, which is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2016.
