New 200 Space Park and Ride Opens In Rochester
To Assist Travelers Along The Spaulding Turnpike

Travelers along the Spaulding Turnpike have a new ride-sharing and transit option.

A new 200-space Park and Ride is now open for use in Rochester, located immediately west of the Exit 13 interchange off of US Route 202 on Highland Commons Drive.

The Park and Ride is aimed at providing alternative transportation choices to reduce travel demand on the Spaulding Turnpike through either ride-sharing or bus service.

The public transit operator COAST will begin using the Park and Ride on August 4th for its commuter express to the Pease International Tradeport (Route 20) and commuter express to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (Route 103). Morning pick-ups will be at 5:55 am and 7:20 am, and afternoon drop-offs will be at 4:15 pm and 5:50 pm.

Porous pavement, underground stormwater storage/treatment, and vegetated water quality measures were used on the project to reduce environmental impacts due to surface water run-off.

Alvin J. Coleman and Sons, Inc. of Conway, New Hampshire was the contractor for the $1.4 million project.
