Rockingham Road work giving some headaches

Detours, delays frustrate drivers and residents


At Birch Street, motorists are directed to take Windham Road to Berry Road to rejoin Route 28. At the Route 28/Bypass 28 intersection, drivers are then to take the rotary to Route 102 before rejoining Route 28.

This is the first phase of the Rockingham Road project. Fowler said future phases in 2014 will extend farther east on Rockingham and head north along Route 28 and south along Bypass 28.

“The total cost of all phases will be approximately $2 million for water, $2 million for sewer and $1 million for the bridge and road improvements,” he said.

Until the road work is done, Katsakiores said, people should be more careful.

“There’s a lot of extra traffic, but it’s not forever,” she said.

Veduccio said she appreciates the town’s road work, but drivers need to slow down.

“I don’t want anyone to get hit,” she said. “I understand construction has to happen, but I would love it if people driving through the neighborhoods (would slow down). It’s a neighborhood, it’s not a highway.”

Construction updates are available on the town website,
