Exit 24 entrance ramp will be closed for 2 months

CONCORD — The N.H.Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces the start of a pavement and bridge rehabilitation project on Interstate 93 in Ashland and Plymouth.

This project begins just south of Exit 24 in Ashland and extends approximately 6.6 miles to just north of Exit 26 in Plymouth. It will include the rehabilitation of 15 bridges along I-93, as well as drainage and guardrail improvements.

Beginning the week of July 22, the southbound on-ramp at Exit 24 from U.S. Route 3 in Ashland will be closed for approximately two months to allow for construction work. Message boards and signed detours will be in place to alert motorists of the closure.

Pike Industries, Inc. of Belmont, New Hampshire is the general contractor for the $8.97 million project, which has a final completion date of October 31, 2014.
