Heavy traffic expected Sunday after NASCAR race in Loudon
LOUDON - NASCAR fans exiting the New Hampshire Motor Speedway are expected to create heavy traffic in certain areas of the state on Sunday afternoon and evening.
The state Department of Transportation will be implementing a traffic control plan that will close some lanes and open others to maximize the efficient flow of traffic when the race ends.
Efforts will focus on Route 106, Interstate 393 and Interstate 93. More than 100,000 spectators and 37,700 vehicles were expected to attend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Race at the Loudon racetrack.
The race starts at 2:15 p.m. and the period of maximum traffic congestion will occur at the race's end, from late afternoon into early evening hours.
If you can't avoid the area, check the state DOT's webpage for detailed information about where lanes are being added and where they are being restricted.
