Night Lane Closures on I-293 at Exit 4 in Manchester
Southbound Lane Restrictions During the Week of 7/28/14

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces temporary night lane closures are planned on I-293 southbound in Manchester in the vicinity of Exit 4 for construction operations.

Weather permitting, the I-293 southbound lane closures are scheduled to take place from Monday, July 28th to Friday, August 1st starting at 7:00 pm until 6:00 am. Interstate 293 southbound will have one open lane at all times.

The temporary night time lane closures are to allow for paving operations. Motorcycles use caution that grooved pavement will exist temporarily during the week. This work is necessary to accommodate the lane shift that will take place later this month. Electronic message boards and traffic control devices will be used to alert and assist motorists during the lane closures.

This work is part of the I-293 widening and bridge replacement project in the vicinity of Exit 4. The project includes the replacement of four "Red Listed" bridges and the rehabilitation of one "Red Listed" bridge at the I-293 Exit 4 Interchange.

The road work includes: construction of a third southbound lane, beginning approximately 150 feet north of the existing northbound on-ramp and continuing approximately 0.6 mile south; Exit 4 ramps reconstruction and pavement rehabilitation; sound wall construction; drainage improvements; water line reconstruction; installation of concrete median barrier; and guardrail improvements.

Severino Trucking Inc., of Candia, New Hampshire is the general contractor for the $26.2 million project, which has a completion date of November 18, 2016.
