Daniel Webster Highway in south Merrimack and north Nashua will get “pavement preservation work” this summer, but the state Department of Transportation says traffic disruption should be “minimal.”

The work will run from the intersection of the highway with Greeley Street in Merrimack, which leads to Exit 11 on the F.E. Everett Turnpike, south for four miles to Henri Bourque Highway in Nashua. It begins the final week of May and should be finished by Aug. 1.

This section of road had intensive pavement work in 2004.

“It’s much more cost-effective to keep pavement in good condition than to have to replace it,” said DOT spokesman Bill Boynton.

The $1 million project will include paving that is “more of a surface treatment,” plus guardrail and drainage work.

In Merrimack, two-way traffic will be maintained at all times. Changeable message signs will be used to keep the traveling public informed.

In Nashua, two-way traffic will be maintained during commuting hours. Uniformed officers, flaggers and traffic control devices will be used to slow, direct, or assist motorists through the work zone.

All States Asphalt Inc., of Sunderland, Mass., is the contractor.
