- Academy Street - One-way Travel
Due to the unsafe conditions of the road way on Academy Street, the Selectmen voted to make it one-way until the road can be repaired. The one way travel direction on Academy will be from School Street to Prospect Street heading west.
The Town is working with the Tilton-Northfield Water District to come up with a plan for the repairs, but expect that at least for the Summer/Fall, the road will continue to be one way.
