Road Work on Route 12 in Charlestown to begin January 3, 2022

Route 12 will remain closed between Bowen Crossing Road and Almar Street until the project is completed.

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) will begin work to repair the roadway embankment along NH Route 12, located approximately 0.7 miles north of the intersection of NH 12/Bowen Crossing Road in Charlestown on January 3, 2022.  This segment of roadway is constrained by the 100 year floodplain of the Connecticut River on the west, and the New England Central Railroad (NECR) on the east. 
There will be an increase of construction vehicles accessing the site as work progresses, and only authorized construction vehicles will have access to the project site.

Casella Construction of Mendon, Vermont is the contractor for the 2.6 million dollar project, which has a final completion date of April 29, 2022.
