New Hampshire Roads - I-293/NH 3-A/NH 101


This was the exit for Manchester Airport, but since the new connector was built to Everett Tpk., NHDOT wants you to go that way instead. Pro: it's untolled. Con: Still shorter, likely faster to exit here instead.

The way this split is configured, I-293 NB diverges from NH 101, with a short freeway stub continuing west from there. It may eventually be extended as part of NH 101, but almost certainly was meant to be part of I-92 had that freeway been advanced. I-293 north of here is part of Everett Turnpike, but not tolled.

Mileposts with shields have come a long way since this early effort (seen in 2010).

NH has a strange half-square half-rounded BGS outline. This sign is somewhat old, but new enough to have the added kilometric measurement - not bad for the most conservative state in the Northeast.

The tolled Everett Turnpike ("A TOLL ROAD", not just "TOLL" like New Jersey might sign it) continues southward, and now I-293 curves eastward (it may start out going right, but trust me, it curves back), multiplexing with NH 101.

New Hampshire doesn't assign exit numbers to freeway-freeway junctions. We're about to hit the multiplex, where the following happens:

U-turn? (Do U really?) Actually, this loop puts traffic onto the Everett Turnpike NB right before it merges into I-293 NB. So, why bother having it? NH 101/Everett Tpk./I-293 is a four-cornered intersection that has sufficiently messed-up ramps where I-293 SB merges with NH 101 EB before 101 EB's exit for I-293 NB leaves it. So, these signs aren't meant for I-293 SB travelers, though a somewhat quick lane change (500 feet or so) could let you double back toward Manchester.
