New Hampshire Roads - US 4/NH 10

and US 4/NH 10

Just over the state line and onto the Connecticut River, this used to be US 4 EB, but soon will be demolished to make way for a replacement. I can only hope there are some green truss elements on the new bridge, but I doubt it.

Westbound across the bridge toward Vermont.

Looking south on the CT River and where the White River comes in from the west. That would be why the Vermont side is named White River Junction.

Looking north from the bridge.

After the bridge, US 4 encounters NH 10, with which it multiplexes. For US 4 in New Hampshire, multiplexing is the name of the game. If you couldn't tell, the shield atop this page is in the same vicinity.

Distraught by the loss of the Old Man in the Mountain, New Hampshire gives up on its route shield and starts erecting rectangles. They're so distraught, they forgot to keep the arrow separate or to put in a hyphen between 12 and A. That's the best I can do to explain this cheap, insufficient eastbound signage.

Ah, well, New Hampshire makes up for it with these signs just past the intersection. What, now squares without Old Men in Mountains are suddenly good? Yes, when they're so old they predate those Men.

Speaking of predating things, there hasn't been a Business Loop I-89 in generations. When it existed, it crossed the Connecticut River with US 4, thus being one of the few two-state business routes of any kind. When this sign existed, Doug Kerr took this photo, and after he donated it to my collection, it disappeared forever.

Still eastbound, I'm guessing that the original I-89 shield faded so badly it had to get patched over... but why couldn't NHDOT come up with a similar-size shield?

Jumping a bit, we head north of Concord, where US 4 is now multiplexed with I-93. The reason US 4 took so long to get a page on my website is because it's always getting multiplexed with roads like this. US 202 has the same problem, and naturally, US 4 and US 202 do indeed multiplex for the entire length of I-393... and along NH 9, which, yup, had its own page before US 4 got this one.

Between NH 152 and the NH 9/US 202 junction.
