Nighttime Closures on I-293 at Exit 4 in Manchester for Bridge Demolition
North and Southbound Lane Restrictions 1/17/15 Through 1/21/15

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

Weather permitting, the I-293 lane closures are scheduled to take place nightly from Sunday, January 17 through Thursday January 21, from 8:00 pm until 5:00 am each night. Interstate 293 northbound and southbound will have complete closures to traffic twice an hour, in 15 minute intervals from 11:00 pm to 5:00 am, to remove the Exit 4 northbound off-ramp overpass bridge. Electronic message boards, traffic control devices, and NH State Troopers will be used to alert and assist motorists during the closures. Motorists are advised to use NH Route 101 East to I-93 North as an alternate route.

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.
