This spring, the Laconia Water Department will replace water lines on Summer Street. After they have completed their improvements, Busby Construction will pave the street.
The water main under a portion of Weirs Boulevard is also being replaced. In addition to that section of road, the south end of Weirs Boulevard will be repaved, as well as all of Lake Street.
This summer, Eastman Road and Elm Street (from Hickory Stick Lane to Meredith Center Road) will be resurfaced. Additionally, measures will be taken to preserve the Highland Street bridge.
The deck of the Messer Street bridge requires significant maintenance. The Department of Public Works anticipates it will take 5 months to do the work necessary. Northbound and southbound traffic will alternate--using one open lane on the bridge. During times of high traffic volume this may cause significant delays. Please plan accordingly.
Due to the volatile nature of the price of materials that are lingering in the post-COVID economy, these plans are subject to change.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Nate Guerette at (603) 528-6379 extension 406.
