LOUDON, N.H. (AP) The state Department of Transportation is planning to resume work on a road near the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The work, scheduled to resume April 1, is phase one of a two-phased widening of a 3.5-mi. section of Route 106.

Phase One widens a nearly 1-mi. segment from 800 ft. south of Mudgett Hill Road to 1,400 ft. north of the speedway's south entrance. The project also includes drainage and guardrail improvements and construction of three stormwater treatment ponds.

Speed limits will be reduced to 45 mph during work hours. Drivers should expect temporary lane shifts and occasional lane closures.

The $2.63 million project has a completion date of Nov. 22.
