Tractor Trailer Restrictions at Hooksett Rest Area Along I-93 NB
To Allow for Construction of New Visitors Center and Liquor Store

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) and Liquor Commission (NHLC) announces plans to restrict tractor trailers from the northbound rest area in Hooksett on Interstate 93 (Everett Turnpike). This restriction is necessary as the existing parking lot area is being reduced to allow for the construction of site improvements to include utilities, fuel pumps, and new parking lot.

The restriction is scheduled to begin Monday, May 12 and continue to early September 2014. This is a 24-hour restriction and no tractor trailer trucks will be permitted to stop at the northbound rest area facility. All tractor trailers are requested to seek alternate facilities during this timeframe.

Variable message boards will be situated northbound along I-93 noting the truck restriction, as well as notification via 5-1-1 system.

This restriction affects only the northbound rest area facility; the southbound rest area facility will continue to have space to accommodate tractor trailers.

The new visitor center and liquor store facilities will have a phased opening, beginning September 2014, when the new liquor and wine outlet store will be opened. This is to be followed by a spring 2015 opening for the remainder of the facilities. In addition to the liquor and wine outlet, each facility northbound and southbound along I-93 will feature an interactive visitors center, expanded parking and bathroom accommodations, 16 fuel pumps, a convenience store and restaurants, as well as dedicated parking spaces for tractor trailers.
