ROCHESTER - The New Hampshire DOT will begin road and guardrail repair work today on the Spaulding Turnpike south of the Rochester tolls.
The work will close portions of both northbound and southbound lanes and will be ongoing for a few weeks.
Next Monday around 6:30 a.m. northbound travel will be reduced to one lane for about two weeks. Then around April 24, northbound will reopen to two full lanes and road repair operations will shift to the southbound section where travel will again be reduced to just one lane.
The southbound work is anticipated to be completed and reopened to two full lanes by May 21.
Variable message boards and construction signage will alert motorists to any changes.
Weather permitting, crews will work Monday through Saturday during daytime hours. Motorists are encouraged to remain alert and drive safely in construction zones, following all posted signs.
The road repair work is being completed by Severino Trucking, Inc. of Candia.
