Effective March 30, 2018 the Weight Restriction Road Posting has been lifted. 

AS OF TODAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2018 the Goffstown road posting is in effect.


Per RSA 231:191, the Town of Goffstown must employ load/weight restrictions during the spring thaw period. The Town’s load limit policy (see below) is effective February 27, 2018 for posted roads. This is done to prevent roadway damage and to protect the large infrastructure investment the Town has made.

Waivers will be issued by DPW on an emergency basis only as conditions allow. Contact Cathy Willmott at 497-3617 x200 to apply.

The Streets and Drains Division of Goffstown Public Works has the responsibility of maintaining all of the town road and drainage structures. Each summer, roads are prioritized for maintenance according to the Infrastructure Maintenance Plan. Data is gathered every couple of years on the condition of our roads. This information is entered into a computer program. The program takes into account the road condition, traffic volume and roughness, and prioritizes the worst roads. Through the reclamation and resufacing budgets provided for in the CIP budget, the division does their best to keep up the road conditions.

Please note that springtime repair to potholes has begun.  We use a method called "mill and fill" where the pothole and some of the surrounding pavement is milled out and a permanent hot pavement patch is installed.  This is much more effective and long lasting than the "cold patch" and nitpack patching that we are forced to use during the winter months.
