I-93 upgrade project in N.H. awarded DOT TIFIA grant

A project that will add new lanes and other upgrades along Interstate 93 (I-93) in New Hampshire has received support from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Department of Transportation said this week.

The FHWA is awarding a $200 million Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) loant  to build new lanes and other improvements on the Interstate on a 19.8-mile stretch between Salem and Manchester.

DOT said I-93 serves the state economically, carrying approximately 100,000 vehicles daily. By 2040, this is expected to increase to approximately 140,000 vehicles.

“The TIFIA loan will help New Hampshire embark on an ambitious project that will create more opportunity for communities along the corridor,” Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said. “As seen in our Beyond Traffic study released last year, this is a region with a rapidly growing population, experiencing greater traffic and increased gridlock. The I-93 widening will provide the area with an economic boost, and increase access to businesses and jobs.”
