Overhead Sign Structure Work on the Spaulding Turnpike in Newington
Nighttime Installation Planned Between Exit 4 and the Little Bay Bridge

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation announces upcoming night work on the Spaulding Turnpike (NH 16) will involve the erection of a full-span overhead sign structure between Exit 4 and the Little Bay Bridge in Newington New Hampshire.

This work will take place on the night of Monday, September 21, 2015. Impacts to motorists will include short-term roadway closures, with rolling roadblocks, on the Spaulding Turnpike in the northbound and southbound directions, and a longer-term single lane closure on the Spaulding Turnpike in the southbound direction.

Work on the Spaulding Turnpike will begin at approximately 9:00 pm on September 21, with short-term roadway closures beginning at approximately 12:00 am (9/22). The duration of the short-term closures is anticipated to be less than 15 minutes. The long-term single lane closure on the Spaulding Turnpike southbound will be in place until approximately 4:00 am (9/22). This work is expected to be completed in one night. Inclement weather would delay this work to the next available night.

Cianbro Corporation of Pittsfield, Maine is the general contractor for the $50.3 million project, which recently constructed the new Little Bay Bridge between Newington and Dover.
