The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces night work on the Spaulding Turnpike (NH 16) to facilitate the opening of the new Exit 6 northbound off-ramp from the Spaulding Turnpike to US Route 4, and the expansion of the northbound Spaulding Turnpike from two to three lanes across the Little Bay Bridge in Newington and Dover.

Through Wednesday, May 22, nighttime construction operations will take place on the Spaulding Turnpike between Exit 3 and Exit 6 in order to open the new Exit 6 northbound off-ramp to US Route 4 in Dover, and to expand the northbound Spaulding Turnpike from two to three lanes across the Little Bay Bridge.

Temporary northbound lane closures will be in place each night in order to allow for the placement of pavement markings and the relocation of temporary concrete barrier. The duration of this night work is expected to be three nights, with the goal of providing the third northbound lane over the Little Bay Bridge before the Memorial Day holiday weekend. This work is weather dependent. Adverse weather conditions would delay this work to the next available nights.

This work is weather dependent. Adverse weather conditions would delay this work to the next available nights.

The new Exit 6 northbound off-ramp will be located just south of the US Route 4 overpass, instead of just north of the US Route 4 overpass where the temporary Exit 6 ramp has been located for the last two years. Motorists intending to use the new Exit 6 northbound off-ramp are advised to stay in the right lane as they proceed across the Little Bay Bridge so they don't miss the new exit.

This work is part of the Spaulding Turnpike improvement project in Newington and Dover. Severino Trucking Company, Inc. of Candia, New Hampshire is the prime contractor for the $67 million project, which is scheduled to be completed in October, 2020.
