A 443-space Park and Ride (PNR)/Bus Station facility was built in the northwest quadrant of the Exit 5 interchange in Londonderry on Route 28. The contract was awarded to R. S. Audley, Inc. of Bow, NH on October 11th. The PNR facility includes a westbound, slip-ramp ingress from Route 28, with egress via a loop road (on-site) and Symmes Drive. The loop road also provides egress for Waste Management Property vehicles to the Route 28 signals via Symmes Drive.
This construction project involved not only the PNR, but included the full reconstruction of approximately 2500 linear feet of Rockingham Road (NH 28) from the Perkins Road intersection westerly to a point approximately 400 feet west of the Enterprise Drive intersection. Minor widening of Route 28 from the limits of the full reconstruction, easterly through the Exit 5 interchange area and extending to just east of the NB ramps intersection was also accomplished.
Rockingham Road opened to the public in September 2008 with remaining work completed by October.
A bus maintenance facility was also constructed in this area as well as a full-service bus terminal, both in support of the expanded bus service implemented along the I-93 corridor in November 2008.
