The Hampton Falls exit ramp to go southbound on Route 1 from Route 101 is closed from June 11th, 2017 through June 16th, 2017. This is part of a New Hampshire DOT road maintenance detailed below:

NH Route 101 Ramp Closure in Hampton for Five Days
Detour for Closed US Route 1 Southbound On-Ramp

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces a planned five day closure of the US Route 1 southbound on-ramp from NH Route 101 eastbound in Hampton, beginning Sunday, June 11 at 8:00 pm. The ramp closure will extend from June 11 to June 16, 2017.

Eastbound motorists on NH 101 seeking to go to US 1 southbound will be detoured onto NH Route 27 using Exit 13. Travelers will take Exit 13 to Liberty lane, then Liberty lane for a few hundred feet onto NH 27 eastbound to Route 1. Message boards and signs on NH 101 eastbound will alert motorists to the detour.

This ramp work is part of a project that includes paving, bridge rehabilitations, and guardrail upgrades along US Route 1 in Seabrook, Hampton Falls, and Hampton. Construction work on the closed southbound on-ramp will include removal and replacement of all pavement and guardrail.

Brox Industries, Inc. of Dracut, Massachusetts is the contractor for the $3 million project, which has a final completion date of October 20, 2017.

For Hampton Falls residents, there are a number of detours that you can use.

  1. Exit 101 at the Stratham/Exeter (Portsmouth Ave) and take Holland Way to Hampton Road to Route 88/Exeter Road,
  2. Exit 101 to Route 111, turn Right on Hampton Road and then left on Ashbrook Road and then left on Route 88/Exeter Road,
  3. Exit 101 at the Hampton Exit and turn left on Exeter Road. Turn left on Timber Swamp Road and then Right to Towle Farm Road,

There are some other ways to get from Route 101 to Hampton Falls, but these are just a few to start with. Please take care in your travels as the weather is now attracting beach goers and as we all know, traffic is going to be an issue now until the end of Summer.
