Turnpike paving to begin

A three-month, $1 million road-paving project is scheduled to begin Tuesday night on the F.E. Everett Turnpike in Nashua, according to state highway department officials.

Highway department workers will begin paving the road in the northbound lanes between Exits 2 and 4 and will be shutting down lanes in order to complete the process, state highway department officials said in a prepared statement.

The work is scheduled for the hours of 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., officials said.

Work on the southbound lanes is expected to begin July 19, between Exits 1 and 5, and the entire project is scheduled to be finished in September, officials said.
