NH Route 12 Rehabilitation in Walpole-Charlestown
Reconstruction and Widening of Roadway Will Impact Traffic

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces road construction work is scheduled to resume on Monday, March 30, 2020.

The project includes reconstruction of three miles of Route 12 from the from the intersection of Main Street in North Walpole to the intersection of NH Route 12A in Charlestown.

The roadway will be widened towards the Connecticut River, which will provide 11-foot lanes and four to five-foot wide shoulders. The widened roadway will be the result of an armored slope along the Connecticut River, updated drainage and storm water management, substantial utility relocation, and guardrail installation.

Intermittent alternating one-way traffic with signals will be in place during this project. Message boards and signs will be used to alert motorists of current conditions. Motorists can expect delays due to lane shifts and should exercise caution when travelling through construction zones.

Sargent Corporation of Stillwater, Maine is the contractor for the project, which has a final completion date of August, 2021.
