Editorial: Road work ahead on I-93

(Continued)

A $35.1 million southbound widening project at Exit 3 in Windham will include relocation of a section of Route 111. Work is expected to be done in 2016.

A $12.1 million bridge replacement project at Exit 3 is due to be completed this year.

Levine cautions that drivers will need to remain alert and vigilant.

“Be courteous, let people merge in front of you, watch your speed,” he said. “There are a lot of interesting things on the side of the highway, but keep your eyes on the road.”

Above all, avoid distractions such as texting, which as we all know, is illegal while driving in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

The I-93 expansion is certainly an inconvenience for drivers and will remain so for the next few years. But it is necessary and important work. I-93 before the expansion was burdened with traffic well beyond its design capacity. That made the highway extremely dangerous and the site of far too many accidents.

Once this project is complete, drivers will have a highway that is less congested, faster, and above all, safer to use.
