The New Hampshire Department of Transportation announces night work associated with the construction of the Exit 2 Interstate 93 bridges in Salem. Removal operations for the temporary bridge over NH Route 97/Pelham Road will take place on the night of Thursday, August 28, 2014, weather permitting.

Construction operations will require traffic on NH Route 97/Pelham Road to be detoured from approximately 8:00 pm to 6:00 am. This detour will be in place to prevent traffic from traveling under the existing bridges while the temporary bridge is being removed. The detour route for NH 97/Pelham Road will be South Policy Road to Lowell Road to Stiles Road.

Message boards and detour signing will be in place to assist motorists through the detour. Motorists should remain alert while traveling through the construction zone and obey all posted signs.

This work is part of the I-93 widening and reconstruction project in the vicinity of Exit 2. The general contractor for the $41 million project is George R. Cairns & Sons, Inc., of Windham, New Hampshire.
