Road Repair Work on the Spaulding Turnpike

Lane Closures Required to Complete Work

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT)  will begin road and guardrail repair work on Monday, April 5, 2021 on the Spaulding Turnpike (Route 16). 

This work will require lane closures on both the north and south bound sections of the Spaulding Turnpike,  just north of Exit 9 in Dover and south of the Rochester Toll Plaza for several weeks.  

Beginning April 12, 2021 at 6:30 am northbound travel will be reduced to one 12 foot lane for approximately two weeks. Once this work is completed, on or about April 24, 2021, northbound will reopen to two full lanes and road repair operations will shift to the southbound section where travel will be reduced to one 12 foot lane.  The southbound work is anticipated to be completed and reopened to two full lanes before May 21, 2021. Variable message boards and construction signing will alert motorist of these changes.

Weather permitting, crews will work Monday through Saturday during daytime hours to complete this project. Motorists are encouraged to remain alert and drive safely in construction zones, following all posted signs.  Road Repair Work is being completed by Severino Trucking, Inc. of Candia, NH.
