Day and Nighttime Milling and Paving on Route 4 in Durham

Milling and paving work will require temporary lane shifts and ramp closures on Route 4 between the Lee Traffic Circle and .25 miles east of Route 108.

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation announces that starting on Monday, May 23, 2022 daytime milling operations will begin on Route 4 in Durham on the exit ramps of Route 155, Route 155A and Route 108.

Paving operations will commence the following week starting on May 31, 2022. Ramp paving will require ramp closures between 8 pm and 6 am. Detours will be in place for each location.

Ramp milling is scheduled to take approximately one week beginning with daytime lane shifts between 7:00 am – 4:30 pm and then switch to nighttime lane shifts between 8:00 pm and 6:00 am. Message boards will be used to notify the travelling public.

Additionally, alternating one way traffic will be used at night to mill and pave Route 4 from the Lee traffic circle to .25 miles east of Route 108 in Durham. The mainline paving work will be done at night between the hours of 8:00 pm and 6:00 am and will commence after the ramp work is completed.

The work is weather dependent and is expected to take three weeks to complete.

This project involves resurfacing existing roadways in select locations in Lee/Durham Route 4, Durham/Madbury/Dover Route 108, Rollinsford Route 4, and Rochester on Route 11.

Continental Paving of Londonderry, NH is the contractor for the $5 million project, which has a final completion date of September 23, 2022.
