|Flood Damaged Section of NH Route 12A in Alstead to Reopen
Emergency Project Addressed Half-Mle Stretch Closed Since June
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation announces the planned reopening of a half-mile stretch of NH Route 12A in Alstead that has been closed since it was severely damaged by flooding in late June.
The repaired section of NH 12A will be open to through traffic during the afternoon of Tuesday, December 3, 2013. Once the road is opened, motorists should expect alternating one-way traffic with flaggers for the remainder of this week as additional clean-up work continues. Final paving will take place in the spring of 2014.
This emergency repair project begins on NH Route 12A, just north of the intersection with Walpole Valley Road, and proceeds north for approximately one-half mile. It involved 15 individual repair sites with work that included full roadway reconstruction, shoulder and ditch line repair, slope repairs, construction/installation of a retaining wall, box culvert and drainage, ledge removal, guardrail replacement, and paving.
R.S. Audley Inc., of Bow, New Hampshire is the general contractor for the $1,786,097 emergency repair project.
