Road detours in NH (minor)
« on: April 30, 2007, 01:52:38 PM »
Just a couple of notes of road closures and detours in NH to/from NEAR-fest:

For y'all coming in from the Keene NH area, Route 101 west of Manchester is closed in Wilton, NH (just west of Milford).  There is just a short detour around the landslide area through the center of Wilton.  (I understand this morning - Thursday - that the 101 detour is gone, the main road is passable)

Route 102 just south of Exit 5 on Route 101 is closed from a bridge washout.  From the map, it looks like it involves Route 107 also, but there also appears to be a work around through the center of Raymond.

If you are coming down Route I-89 from VT area, be aware that from Exit 4 to Route 93, the speed limit has dropped to 55 due to road construction.

Drive safe.

Hey Jack -

Any issues that you can see with the old Deerfield Rte 4 approach, beyond the usual traffic? I went from traveling that road regularly in the late 90s to only making the occasional trip, the last one being a year ago. Curious to know if they have any construction or other potential traps?

Thanks

No, there is really no issues with that route, if you want to deal with the traffic.  Basically it is I-89 south to I-93 north to I-393 east. Then I-393 merges into 4-202-9.  The I-93 and I-393 route bypasses Concord.  I used to go that way to Deerfield all the time when I lived in Henniker.  But these days I live in Weare and work in Exeter and 101 goes right through Exeter.  Years ago 101 east of Manchester used to be a blend of divided highway and two lanes through various towns.  These days it is a nice 4 lane divided highway from Manchester to Hampton (route I-95).  Speed limit is 65, but you hardly find anyone traveling less than 70 mph.  Even when I go to Maine from home these days, I take 101 even though the 4-202-9 way is shorter.  Y'all can put on the cruise control and listen to the tunes...
