NH Route 12 Closed in Charlestown, NH
Detour In Place While Roadway is Assessed.
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces the emergency closure of NH Route 12 in Charlestown, New Hampshire. Due to saturated soils from the recent heavy rains, sections of NH Route 12 have settled and will require further evaluation. NH Route 12 is now closed from the south at the intersection of NH Route 12A and NH Route 12. From the north, NH Route 12 is closed beginning at Almar Street.
While the roadway is closed, a signed detour will be in place. The detour will direct motorists to use U.S. Route 5 and Interstate Route 91 in Vermont. Signs and message boards will be placed to advise local traffic of the detour. Motorists are asked to follow all posted signs and to obey all traffic signals.
The evaluation process will take a few days. Until that work is complete, any estimates of the duration of the closure are premature and speculation. ~ Steve
