Night Crack Sealing Work at I-93 and Route 101 in Manchester Near Exit 6
Southbound and Northbound Lane Restrictions for the Next Two Weeks

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces temporary nighttime lane closures are planned for construction operations on I-93 northbound and southbound in Manchester in the vicinity of Exit 6.

Weather permitting, the I-93/Route 101 northbound and southbound lane closures are scheduled to take place over the next two weeks from 9:00 pm until 5:00 am each night. Interstate 93 northbound and southbound will have lanes open at all times.

These temporary night time lane closures are to allow for crack sealing operations prior to paving operations scheduled for next year. The northbound off-ramp at Exit 6 to Candia Road will also be widened this fall and paved next year. 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 three miles of resurfacing at the confluence of I-93 and Route 101 in Manchester. The paving treatment will be to crack seal the roadway full width and then overlay the traveled way with asphalt rubber bonded pavement. When the paving is complete, the roadway traffic markings will be realigned to create an Exit Only lane for I-93 northbound Exit 6 off-ramp traffic.

The Gorman Group, LLC of Albany, N.Y.is the general contractor for the $2.2 million project, which has a completion date of July 29, 2016.
