Speed Limit to Increase to 65 Mph on Spaulding Turnpike
From Exit 9 in Dover Through Exit 16 in Rochester

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces plans to increase the existing speed limit from 55 mph to 65 mph on a section of the Spaulding Turnpike from Exit 9 in Dover through Exit 16 in Rochester, excluding the segment through the toll plaza in Rochester.

This posted speed limit change will be in effect with the installation of new speed limit signs, which is expected to be completed by January 1, 2015.

The speed limit change follows a study conducted this year to determine the appropriate limit on the Spaulding Turnpike following the completion of the multi-lane divided highway through Exit 16. The change is being implemented following input from NH State Police.

The speed limit south of Exit 9 will remain at 55 mph.
