NH Route 135 Emergency Repair Project in Lancaster
Completion Date Extended to December 11

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces the completion date for the emergency repair project on NH Route 135 in Lancaster has been extended to December 11, 2015.

The full road closure just north of the Lancaster-Dalton town line of this section of NH 135 began on September 17th. A signed detour utilizing US Route 3 will remain in place for the duration of the NH 135 closure.

This repair project is in response to a slope failure along NH Route 135 next to the Connecticut River. It involves road reconstruction, installing a retaining wall along the Connecticut River, replacing twin drainage pipes with a concrete box culvert, and the placement of stone along both sides of the road. The contractor is working six days a week and significant progress is being made on the emergency repair work.

Alvin J. Coleman & Son, Inc. of Conway, New Hampshire is the contractor for the $845,000 project.
