Main Street Crosswalk Repairs


Repairs to the brick paver crosswalks on North Main Street, from Park Street to Pleasant Street, will begin on Monday, April 15. Work is expected to start at 7 a.m. and wrap up by 6 p.m. each day. Construction will begin at Park Street and continue south toward Pleasant Street. All work is expected to be completed by Memorial Day weekend.  Updates on the downtown road closures/detours and the work schedule will be provided as the work progresses on the Engineering page of the City’s website (, as well as via the City’s Twitter and Facebook pages.

When the crosswalk work is actively happening, northbound traffic on North Main Street will be detoured east on Pleasant Street to Storrs Street. Southbound traffic will not be detoured. Traffic approaching Main Street from Capital and Warren Streets will be permitted to only make right turns onto North Main Street. Detours will be taken down at the end of each work day and two-way traffic will be allowed to resume each evening. 

Parking will be maintained outside the immediate construction area to the maximum extent possible.

Please see the map of downtown showing the proposed detour route along with some possible alternate ways of accessing Main Street. The map also includes some nearby construction occurring on Green Street for the State of NH’s steam system improvements and the detour associated with that project. Updates to this map will be included each Friday on the Engineering webpage and in the City Manager’s Newsletter, which can be accessed by clicking on the Newsletter link on the City’s Website at
