Columbus Day weekend brings traffic headaches, dollars to NH


HOOKSETT - Thousands of visitors are in New Hampshire this holiday weekend. Many of them faced a nightmare of traffic on the way to the Granite State on Friday.

"128 to 95 is like a parking lot," said Al Groccia.

"Bumper to bumper - stop and go ... the usual," another driver told NH1 News.

Ann Groccia, Al's wife, said she left her house later to avoid the traffic, but "it was still backed up."

The Hooksett tolls were busier than usual Friday night - as drivers fill up, cash out, and stock up at the liquor outlet.

The extra traffic is a welcome sign for the state.

"We have a door counter that would give us the counts that would probably say this is one of the busiest days of the year," a state worker told NH1.
