NH expands roadside assistance to Spaulding Turnpike

The Associated Press

PORTSMOUTH - New Hampshire is expanding its roadside assistance program to include the Spaulding Turnpike from Portsmouth to Rochester.

Beginning Wednesday, the state's Department of Transportation will add a service patrol truck for the turnpike during the morning and afternoon commutes. The service already exists on Interstate 95.

Drivers who experience relatively simple problems such as a flat tire, dead battery or running out of gas will get assistance from the truck. The goal is to clear disabled vehicles from the road as quickly as possible so that small problems don't cause major tie-ups.

Extra coverage may be added on holidays and for special events.
