Spaulding Turnpike Paving Operations in Newington-Dover
Day and Night Work on 3 Miles from Little Bay Bridge to Exit 1

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces final paving work is set to begin Thursday, April 21, 2016 on approximately three miles of the Spaulding Turnpike from the Little Bay Bridge to Exit 1.

This combination of daytime and nighttime paving operations will include the northbound and southbound lanes, as well as the Exit 4 and Exit 3 ramps. Lane and ramp closures will be necessary in order to complete the work, which is expected to take four weeks to complete. Electronic message boards and signs will alert motorists to the lane and ramp closures. Motorists should anticipate delays and use alternate routes if possible.

This project has realigned and widened the Spaulding Turnpike northbound and southbound lanes, as well as the exits, between Exit 1 and the Little Bay Bridge to align with the future two bridge crossing of Little Bay.

Continental Paving, of Londonderry, New Hampshire is the contractor for the paving portion of this project. The general contractor is Alvin J. Coleman & Son, of Conway, New Hampshire. The final completion date of the $43 million project is May 20, 2016.
