SALEM — Temporary realignment of Interstate 93 southbound near Exit 2 is scheduled for tomorrow night, weather permitting, according to the New Hampshire Department of Transportation.
The work will take place during non-commuter hours, from approximately 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Upon completion of the pavement striping operation, southbound traffic will be realigned to use the new temporary bridge. Motorists utilizing the Exit 2 southbound off-ramp will also have a new off-ramp location further to the north of the existing location.
Construction operations will require traffic on I-93 southbound to be reduced to one lane. Motorists should remain alert while traveling through the construction zone and obey all posted signs.
This work is part of the $41 million I-93 widening and reconstruction project in the vicinity of Exit 2. The general contractor is George R. Cairns & Sons Inc. of Windham.
