Traffic patterns changing on I-93 in N.H.


In Salem, George S. Cairns & Sons of Windham are working on the Exit 2 interchange reconstruction. The $40.9 million project was estimated to be about 20 percent complete this summer.

The state intends to complete the I-93 widening by 2020, but officials say about $250 million in work, including improvements in the Exit 4 area of Londonderry and Derry, remains unfunded.

Transportation Commissioner Chris Clement, appearing at a hearing for the state’s 10-year transportation plan this summer in Londonderry, said the widening remains a New Hampshire priority.

But amid funding uncertainty, there’s an effort in the Legislature, opposed by Southern New Hampshire lawmakers, to remove I-93’s priority status so other highway projects throughout the state can be pursued.
