I-93 Widening Project Slowed By Snow And Bitter Cold

Winter usually is a slow season for construction, but the amount of snow and sub-zero temperatures have delayed the project to widen part of Interstate 93 a bit.

The project, expected to be done in 2020, will widen the interstate from the Massachusetts border in Salem to Exit 5 in Manchester.

The Eagle Tribune reports a project manager says from Thanksgiving until late January, things were going smoothly.

But late January and all of February were a whole different story, slowing things down to the point where some of the work was stopped. Costas Papachristos, who's been working on widening I-93 south and installing a sound wall near a bridge overpass, says about three weeks' worth of time has been lost.
