Route 125 access road still years away

Plaistow connector road is still a few years away

Rob Waters of Megastore Trucks on 103 Plaistow Road supports the project.

“It will allow access to the back of our properties, which will raise the values of our properties and increase tax revenues,” Waters said.

Fitzgerald said it would relieve traffic congestion on Route 125.

“It would hopefully reduce truck traffic on the road,” he said. “If delivery trucks have to stop and turn into the plazas on Route 125, it can cause a little bit of a backup.”

Victoria Chase, the project manager for the New Hampshire Department of Transportation, said the issues they are encountering are standard.

“Any time you’re putting in a road where there isn’t one now, then there is bound to be property impacts associated with that,” she said. “Everyone wants to have their say and give us their specific needs.”

Chase said they are still several months away from appraising and acquiring property. She expects the final design of the road by 2015.
