Roundabout Opening On NH Route 9 and Base Hill Road in Keene
Final Traffic Configuration on Nights And Weekends

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces plans to shift traffic into roundabout configuration in Keene on Wednesday, September 14, 2016.

Traffic entering the roundabout from NH Route 9 and Base Hill Road north and south will be instructed to yield to traffic inside the roundabout. Motorists are advised to be aware of the new traffic configuration and reduce speed when entering the roundabout.

In order to facilitate remaining work, the previously announced detour should be expected during regular work hours. Eastbound traffic on NH Route 9 turning left onto Base Hill Road north will be directed to the existing roundabout at the intersection of Route 10 and Winchester Street to reverse direction and make a right turn into Base Hill Road north. Additionally, traffic traveling on Base Hill Road south looking to turn left onto Route 9 westbound will also be directed to reverse direction at the existing Route 9/Winchester Street roundabout. Through traffic on Base Hill Road will be maintained, but lengthy delays are possible. It is still advised that through traffic on Base Hill Road find alternate travel routes.

Message boards, uniformed officers, flaggers, and traffic control devices along NH Rt. 9 and Base Hill Rd. will be used to provide advanced information and direct motorists through the work zone.

This work is part of the construction of a new Roundabout at the intersection of NH Route 9 and Base Hill Road in Keene, NH. Weaver Bros. Construction of Bow, New Hampshire is the general contractor for the $1.5 million project, which is scheduled for completion in October of 2016.
