Pavement Rehabilitation on US Route 3 in Merrimack and Nashua
Four Miles from Greely Street to Henri Bourque Highway

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation announces the start of pavement preservation work, including repairing and replacing guardrail, and minor drainage work, on US Route 3 in Merrimack and Nashua. The project begins at Greely Street in Merrimack and proceeds south for four miles to the intersection at Henri Bourque Highway in Nashua.

This section of Route 3 had intensive pavement work in 2004. This paving project will maintain the riding surface and extend the life of the existing pavement.

Construction operations will have minimal traffic impacts. Work will be completed using lane closures, and will be returned to normal traffic patterns prior to non-work hours.

In Merrimack, two-way traffic shall be maintained at all times. Changeable message signs will be used to keep the traveling public informed. In Nashua, two-way traffic will be maintained during commuting hours. Uniformed officers, flaggers, and traffic control devices will be used to slow, direct, and assist motorists through the work zone.

All States Asphalt, Inc., of Sunderland Massachusetts, is the contractor for the $1 million pavement preservation contract, which has a completion date of August 1, 2014.
