Final Roadway Project Begins on Spaulding Turnpike In Newington-Dover
Widening to Eight Lanes for 3.2 Miles Between Exit 3 and Exit 6

Roadway construction has started on the final roadway project on the Newington-Dover corridor on the Spaulding Turnpike. This project involves the widening of the Spaulding Turnpike from the Woodbury Avenue interchange 3.2 miles north to a point 3,000 feet past the Dover Toll Plaza. It will create eight lanes between Exit 3 and Exit 6 on the Spaulding Turnpike, and will provide the final roadway match to the new Little Bay Bridges.

Work on this project will also include the reconstruction of the Exit 6 Interchange, including the replacement of the US Route 4 Bridge, the construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Route 4 and Boston Harbor Road, improvements to Dover Point Road west and Boston Harbor Road, and the construction of soundwalls from the Little Bay Bridge to a point north of the Dover Toll Plaza.

Work scheduled for 2016 includes the establishment of staging areas, clearing operations, construction of erosion control measures, and the construction of roadway widening and embankments in the Exit 6 area to facilitate the construction of the new Route 4 bridge, and partial soundwall construction.

Motorists proceeding through this area should expect daily construction activity next to the roadway, with construction vehicles entering and exiting the work area on a regular basis.

Severino Trucking Company is the general contractor for the $67 Million project, which is scheduled to be completed in October of 2020.
