2017 Fall Paving Program UPDATE

2017 Paving work will begin on September 20th.  This includes reclaiming portions of Drakeside Road and Hardardt's Way followed by the milling of Woodland Road, Town Road, Merrill Industrial Drive.  The roadways will then be paved and shoulders filled.  The paving contractor for the Town of Hampton for 2017 will be Brox Industries, Inc.

Temporary Detour: Hardardt's Way to/from Transfer Station – Use Tide Mill Road

Due to the necessary paving and associated work along Hardardt's way, thru traffic to/from the Transfer Station and deliveries to businesses along Tide Mill Road will be detoured to Tide Mill Road beginning September 20th. This is TEMPORARY and as soon as Hardardt's Way is safe to travel the roadway will be reopened.

Lafayette Road Sewer Project

The Town of Hampton has hired Jamco Excavators to replace the sewer infrastructure on Lafayette Road between Winnacunnet Road and High Street.  This work is necessary to replace the aging and failing system.  The sewer main and services to the property lines of each property will be replaced.  The work will be completed at night between the hours of 10pm – 6am.  The BUSINESSES THAT ARE OPEN WITHIN THIS TIME PERIOD WILL BE OPEN AND ACCESS TO THESE LOCATIONS WILL BE PROVIDED.  It is anticipated that work will be completed by November 19, 2017.  

Drakeside Road Abutment Removal and Road Reconstruction UPDATE

Drakeside road is now open. Please use caution. The roadway that has been constructed will remain gravel until we can coordinate with the Town's paving contractor for final surface treatments. Thank you for your patience, and please be considerate of the residents and businesses in this area by reducing your speed. This will help to keep the dust down and keep everyone safe.
