Highway 13 Project in Manchester Slated for 2020

The year 2020 will be a big year for street projects in Manchester.

City Manager Tim Vick says in two years, the main traffic flow through town will be affected as crews work on Highway 13 from the city’s west end near Walmart to the north end by the water tower.

Last week, the Manchester City Council approved an engineering agreement for the Highway 13 project with Fehr Graham. Vick says the entire project is estimated to cost $3.8 million dollars, though the State will pick up a portion of that since Highway 13 is a state highway.

Quite a few Manchester businesses will be affected along the route – and Vick says they will be reaching out to them to help them plan for the inconveniences this project will bring.

The Highway 13 project in 2020 will be the largest street improvement project Manchester has seen in quite some time, with the roadwork expected to last the entire construction season.
