Commuters on the busy Spaulding Turnpike between Dover and Portsmouth should be seeing some improvement in their daily drive to work and back.
The state Department of Transportation is wrapping up a multi-year lane widening project from Woodbury Avenue in Portsmouth to north of the Dover toll plaza.
It will create eight lanes between Exit 3 and Exit 6 on the Spaulding Turnpike, and will provide the final roadway match to the new Little Bay Bridges.
Work on this project will also include the reconstruction
of the Exit 6 Interchange, including the replacement of the US Route 4 bridge, the construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Route 4 and Boston Harbor Road, improvements to Dover Point Road west and Boston Harbor Road, and the construction of soundwalls from the Little Bay Bridge to a point north of the Dover Toll Plaza.
Roger Wood talked to Bill Boynton of the state D.O.T. About
that project and the replacement of the Sarah Long Middle Bridge
