Nighttime Road Repair Work on I-93 in Franconia Notch
Temporary lane closures will be required throughout the summer.
The New Hampshire Department of transportation (NHDOT) will begin a roadway resurfacing project on Friday, May, 13, 2022 on Route I-93 in Lincoln and Franconia, NH.
This project is a continuation of the project that started September of last year involving curb patch repair work on I-93 in the Town of Lincoln. Work this year will predominantly consist of resurfacing pavement between mile marker 105.9 in Lincoln to mile marker 111.6 in Franconia, on both the northbound and southbound lanes of I-93. Tramway Drive will also be resurfaced along with the reconstruction of the handicap ramps in the area. Additional work will involve guardrail replacement and catch basin reconstruction on I-93.
Most of the roadwork will be performed at night during the hours of 6 pm – 6 am, Sunday through Friday. During this time, motorists will be restricted to one-way alternating traffic controlled by temporary traffic signals & flaggers. Occasional daytime roadwork may occur and will consist of lane shifts or lane reductions.
Motorists are advised to reduce speeds, follow signs, and proceed with caution through the work zone. Overnight hikers/campers are advised that they may experience delays when entering or leaving Franconia Notch attraction parking lots due to construction activities.
This work is scheduled to be completed by September 2022. Pike Industries of Belmont, NH is the prime contractor on the $5.7M resurfacing project.
