Emergency calls before or after hours should be directed to the Windham Police Department, (603) 434-5577, who will either contact us or take other appropriate measures to correct the situation.
We ask for your patience while awaiting our response to your inquiries, as there are only three staff members within the Highway Department, and we are often away from our offices and working about the Town.
Effective immediately, Castle Hill Road, at the Pelham town line, is closed for an indefinite period of time. The decision to close the road to traffic was made after an inspection of a culvert, which carries a portion of Beaver Brook under the road, determined that the integrity of the culvert structure could no longer safely support vehicular traffic.
Signs and barricades on both sides of the culvert and adjoining bridge are in the process of being erected.
Windham town officials will be discussing this matter at an upcoming meeting.
Property owners on the State roadways shown here should contact the Department of Transportation for assistance with any issues or concerns:NH Department of TransportationMaintenance District 516 East Point Drive, Bedford NH 03110(603) 666-3336
