EXIT 6 PARK 7 RIDE FACILITY NOW OPEN
January 13, 2017
ROCKINGHAM – The Exit 6 Park & Ride on The Current’s site opened in late December and is already getting good use.
The project was funded by The Town of Rockingham which owns the land and did much of the site work. Funding was also provided by a State of Vermont Park & Ride Grant, and a federal earmark administered through the Vermont Agency of Transportation.
Forty-eight parking spots were built, with four spots designated as electrical charging stations and three additional spots for handicapped parking. The facility is completely lit, and has a bus stop, shelter, and two bike racks.
“We are very grateful for the Town’s, state’s, and the FTA’s support” said Rebecca Gagnon, Current General Manager. “This project was a long time in the making, and we are pleased that such a quality facility is available to car-poolers, commuters, bus riders, and others”.
The Town of Rockingham, in particular, did much work at their own expense and in a short period of time. The project was designed by DuBois & King of Randolph, Vermont. Project Manager was Steve Horton of Steve Horton Construction Consulting Services of Walpole, New Hampshire. Local companies Lawrence & Lober and Bazin Brothers did the electrical and paving services, respectively.
