So, here's the good news. The construction doesn't get underway until early next year. The bad news...once work begins, it's going to be a nightmare commute for those who use I-293 through Manchester.

Those who use I-293 between Bedford and Manchester, New Hampshire will have to brace themselves for what will possibly be a traffic nightmare. The NHDOT according to NBC10 Boston, says it will begin bridge repairs on I-293 and Route 101 beginning early 2019.

When work begins on the bridge over the Merrimack River, crews will take the three-lane highway, down to two lanes and will also close the north-bound ramp to Brown Ave.

If you or someone you knows commutes on that portion of I-293, city officials say there are a couple of detours you can use. Those options include exiting the highway at Exit 1 and making a U-turn. You could also use Queen City Ave an alternative.

Of course, we will keep you updated on any information as we get closer to the start date of the construction.
