Interstate 293 (abbreviated I-293) is an 11-mile long loop surrounding Manchester, New Hampshire, USA in the rough shape of two sides of a right triangle. Completing the loop in the northeast (the hypotenuse of the triangle) is Interstate 93. The southern portion of the loop shares the road with NH 101 and passes near Manchester-Boston Regional Airport and the Mall of New Hampshire. The western portion of the loop shares the road with the Everett Turnpike, but there are no tolls on this portion of the turnpike.

Route description

.

As of June 16, 2008, the project to complete Exit 5 as a full interchange was complete. Drivers are now able to exit and enter Exit 5 both southbound and northbound. This exit is a Single Point Urban Interchange (SPUI), the third in New Hampshire.

History

Before the portion of the Everett Turnpike that completed the I-293 loop was accepted into the Interstate Highway System, the east-west freeway between I-93 and the Turnpike was designated as Interstate 193 (I-193).cite web |url=http://www.kurumi.com/roads/3di/ix93.html#293nh |title=3-digit Interstates from I-93|author=kurumi.com|accessdate=2006-09-20]

and very similar to the actual route of the Everett Turnpike. It also shows a spur which would have likely been designated I-193. This spur is further north than the I-193 that was eventually built, and was probably intended to link the proposed I-93 to downtown Manchester via the Queen City Bridge or a new river crossing in that area.
