Prior to this past week’s northeaster, we intended to close the road today. This will now be postponed and rescheduled for 7:00am Monday January 4, 2021. During this extra time we will be working with the City of Concord and the Town of Bow to address winter maintenance issues in the event another storm of this magnitude arises. In addition, this will allow the residence and commuters to continue using Hooksett Turnpike during the upcoming holidays.
On January 4, 2021, the traffic north of the bridge will be detoured out to Clinton Street. The traffic south of the bridge will be detoured onto Page Road and then Birchdale Road onto Clinton Street.
The red-listed bridge carrying Hooksett Turnpike over the Bela Brook is scheduled for replacement. This work will begin Monday 12/21/2020. In order to replace the bridge, Hooksett Turnpike will be CLOSED to all traffic 24/7 until approximately Friday 5/14/2021, no vehicles will be able to pass between #60 and #53.
