ROUTE 9 WESTBOUND DETOUR IN HOPKINTON TO BEGIN APRIL 16TH
ALLOWING FOR WORK ON NH 9 BRIDGES OVER ELM BROOK AND CONTOOCOOK RIVER
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces a planned westbound detour for traffic on NH Route 9 in Hopkinton is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, April 16, 2019. This detour is necessary to allow for preservation work on the NH Route 9/US 202bridges over Elm Brook and the Contoocook River that is located between I-89Exit 5 and NH Route 127.
Beginning April 16th, motorists seeking to travel west on NH 9/US 202 will be directed to Exit 6 and across NH 127 to return back to NH 9/US 202. This westbound detour is expected to be in place for about three months.
There will be no detour of NH 9/US 202 eastbound traffic.
The preservation work on both bridges includes replacement of the bridge deck pavements and membranes, deck repairs, replacement of expansion joints, and complete repainting of the structural steel.

SEVEN MONTH DETOUR BEGINNING ABOUT APRIL 1 WILL USE US 202 AND NH 101
The NewHampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces the planned implementation on or about April 1, 2019, of a regional truck detour to allow for the replacement of the NH Route 9 bridge over Otter Brook in Sullivan.
During the bridge replacement project, a planned local detour route for light vehicles will involve a narrow roadway and sharp turn that will not be easily navigated by larger trucks, large motor homes, and vehicles hauling large travel trailers. A signed detour will direct westbound truck traffic on NH Route 9 to turn onto US 202 in Hillsborough, to NH Route 101 in Peterborough and proceed west to Keene. The detour heading eastbound will be to NH 101 in Keene to US 202 in Peterborough to NH 9 in Hillsborough.
This roadway reconstruction project along Route 9 begins near the Granite Gorge Ski Area in Roxbury and continues easterly for approximately 2.1 miles to the Centre Street intersection in Sullivan. Road work includes tree removal on the steep ridgeline slopes and slope reduction to improve sight distances. The project will also include significant drainage and guardrail improvements. Bridge workentails replacing the existing NH Route 9 bridge over Otter Brook, and rehabilitating the Centre Street Bridge over Otter Brook.
