Turnpikes (Toll Roads)

NH Highway MapNew Hampshire has three Turnpike highways:

  • The Blue Star Turnpike extends from the Massachusetts state line in Seabrook to the Maine state line in Portsmouth. It is 16.2 miles in length and constitutes all of I-95 in NH.
  • The Central Turnpike, commonly known as the F. E. Everett Turnpike, extends from the Massachusetts state line in Nashua to Exit 14 in Concord. It is 39.5 miles in length and, in part, constitutes a portion of US Interstate Highways 93 and 293. It connects three urban centers in New Hampshire (the cities of Concord, Manchester, and Nashua).
  • The Spaulding Turnpike extends from Portsmouth to Exit 18 in Milton. It is 33.2 miles in length and is the major north-south artery in the eastern corridor of the state.

All of the toll plazas utilize the E-ZPass system. Sign up for a NH E-ZPass transponder and save up to 30%. Don’t have a transponder? See the full Toll Rate Schedule.
