Traffic Shift Planned on I-93 in Northfield and Tilton
Rehabilitation of the Bridge over the Winnipesaukee River

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces a planned traffic shift on Interstate 93, both northbound and southbound, in Northfield and Tilton in the area of Exit 20.

During the week of April 16, 2018, the I-93 northbound lanes will be shifted to the right. The I-93 southbound lanes will be split, with the high speed lane utilizing a median diversion, while the right lane will be shifted to the right. Motorists merging onto I-93 southbound from Exit 20 will experience a very limited merge area. This traffic configuration is in place to allow the I-93 southbound bridge over the Winnipesaukee River to be rehabilitated, and is expected to be in place until the fall of 2018. The traveling public is advised to drive carefully and follow all construction signs in the work zone.

The project involves the rehabilitation of the Red List bridges that carry I-93 northbound and southbound over the Winnipesaukee River, NH Railroad, and a recreation trail. The project cost is $8.5 million and has a completion date of June 2019. Beck & Bellucci, Inc., of Franklin, New Hampshire, is the prime contractor.
