Road and Bridge Work on I-89 in Sutton

Road and bridge rehabilitation work is scheduled around heavy traffic volumes and school traffic.

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces that road and bridge rehabilitation work has begun on a 7.5 mile section of I-89 in Sutton and New London, NH.   The work involves full depth pavement reclaiming and replacement, drainage improvements, tree clearing, guardrail replacements, rock scaling, bridge expansion joint and deck replacements, and rest area work.  The work is located between mile marker 24.2 and 31.7, on both Northbound and Southbound barrels, and includes work on the ramps at Exits 10 and 11.

The paving and bridge work requiring long-term lane closures will be scheduled around the heavy traffic volumes of late Summer and early Fall.  The work at Exits 10 and 11 will require ramp closures and will be scheduled during the summer when school is not in session. 

The total contract cost of the project is $29.8 million and the prime contractor is Weaver Brothers Construction Company of Bow, NH.  The project is expected to be completed in the Fall 2024.
