Construction Equipment Guide

Roadway construction has started on the final roadway project on the Newington-Dover corridor on the Spaulding Turnpike. This project involves the widening of the Spaulding Turnpike from the Woodbury Avenue interchange 3.2 mi. (5.15 km) north to a point 3,000 ft. (914 m) past 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 includes reconstruction of the Exit 6 Interchange, including the replacement of the U.S. 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.

Work scheduled for 2016 includes the establishment of staging areas, clearing operations; construction of erosion control measures; and the construction of roadway widening and embankments in the Exit 6 area to facilitate the construction of the new Route 4 bridge, and partial soundwall construction.

Motorists proceeding through this area should expect daily construction activity next to the roadway, with construction vehicles entering and exiting the work area on a regular basis.

Severino Trucking Company is the general contractor for the $67 million project, which is scheduled to be complete in October of 2020.
