    Road Work on Route 12 in Walpole-Charlestown

    Alternating one-way traffic and lane shifts will impact motorists.

    The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) will resume work on the reconstruction and widening of three miles of NH Route 12, from the intersection of Main Street in North Walpole to the intersection of NH Route 12A in Charlestown on Monday, April 5, 2021.

    The work includes the reconstruction of Route 12 to widen the roadway 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 will be in place during this project.  Motorists can expect delays due to lane shifts and construction equipment.  Message boards and signs will be used to alert motorists of current conditions.

    Most of the armored slope and utility relocation was completed in 2018, and 80 percent of the drainage improvements were completed in 2019.  Approximately two miles of road reconstruction, including a 6.5 foot by 8.5 foot box culvert and a 66″ diameter cross pipe, were replaced last year.

    Sargent Corporation of Stillwater, Maine is the contractor for the $14.8 million project, which has a final completion date of August 12, 2021.

    I also saw this on the DOT website. Not exactly sure what bridge this is. The RR bridge next to the Vilas Bridge?

    Walpole, NH – Rockingham, VT Bridge Work
    Work will require intermittent, alternating one-way traffic

    The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) will begin maintenance work on Monday, April 5, 2021, on the Church Street bridge over the Connecticut River and Green Mountain Railroad between the towns of Walpole, NH and Bellows Falls/Rockingham, VT.

    The work includes preservation and repair to the concrete deck and membrane, replacement of the bridge joints, and other safety improvements.

    The work is weather dependent and will require intermittent, alternating one-way traffic. Two-way traffic will be maintained over the bridge during non-work hours. Temporary traffic signals will be implemented to facilitate traffic flow and travelers should expect new traffic patterns.

    All tractor-trailers are required to follow posted detours around project. Lane width restrictions will be in place.

    CPM Constructors of Freeport, Maine is the contractor for the $1.7 Million dollar project that has a completion date of 10/29/2021.
