Route 12A repairs in Plainfield complete

PLAINFIELD — A stretch of Route 12A near River Road reopened to two-way traffic Friday after months of repair work following serious erosion caused by the nearby Connecticut River.

A portion of the embankment washed out in April, undercutting about 400 feet of roadway and uprooting the guardrail.

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation closed the southbound lane near River Road, installed a traffic light, and had alternating one-way traffic as construction took place.

The DOT said in a news release Friday that repairs to the embankment were complete and that the road was reopened to two-way traffic.

Minor tasks still need to be completed next week, the DOT said, so motorists may still encounter some short delays then.
