CONCORD – Governor Maggie Hassan issued the following statement on the F. E. Everett Turnpike Exit 12 toll operations in Merrimack, which are set to end tonight at 9:00 p.m. as part of the bipartisan transportation funding bill that the Governor signed in May:
"The most significant state-level investment in transportation infrastructure in 23 years, our bipartisan transportation funding bill is an important step toward addressing our transportation needs and building a solid, modern transportation infrastructure that is critical to the success of our people and businesses. The bipartisan bill keeps New Hampshire's economy moving forward by advancing critical road and bridge projects, finishing the long-overdue expansion of I-93 and improving travel for our businesses, workers and visitors. And by discontinuing toll operations at Exit 12 in Merrimack, this bipartisan bill provides long-sought relief to the citizens of Merrimack."
