Final OK given to I-93 widening.

New Hampshire has received final approval to continue widening Interstate 93, state offidais announced last month.

Approval came from the Federal Highway Administration to continue widening a 19.8mile stretch of I-93 between Salem and Manchester to four lanes. The decision upheld a previous decision that concluded the widening was the best way to balance transportation needs with environmental concerns.

A lawsuit had questioned widening the highway.

"The widening of 1-93 is a top priority of mine, and it is essential that we continue with the progress we have made in order to improve safety and expand opportunities for economic development and jobs," Gov. John Lynch said.

Work had already begun on the project, which state officials said would also improve five interchanges and replace 19 red-listed bridges.
