Extended Road Closure on NH Route 127 in Hopkinton
Ten Week Detour in Place during Work on Hydroelectic Facility

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation announces the planned extended closure to through traffic of a section of NH Route 127 in Hopkinton for approximately ten weeks.

Beginning Monday, Monday, August 27, 2018, Route 127 (Maple Street) will be closed immediately east of the Rowell Covered Bridge to allow for upgrades to the nearby hydroelectric facility. These upgrades to a section of penstock will require excavation of the roadway.

During this construction work, a detour will be in place utilizing Interstate 89 and US Route 202. The only section of NH 127 being closed is the area of the penstock, downstream of the Hopkinton-Everett Reservoir. Route 127 will still be accessible from both sides, but will not allow for through traffic.
