Merrimack at (what is now) exit 11. I never understood the reason for
moving it six miles to the north. Merrimack to Manchester now pays
full toll instead of a reduced toll.
Then, there's the highway layout just north of Spit Brook Road where
they eliminated a rest area. The southbound exit ramp (and northbound
entrance ramp) for Spit Brook Road are each over one mile long. Was
there talk of putting a toll plaza in here and thence allowing Spit
Brook Road to bypass the toll plaza?
And now we come to my primary question: The toll plaza at the
Manchester Airport. Looking at google maps, it looks like anyone can
just hop off the turnpike, turn left on Route 3, and re-enter the
turnpike on the other side of the toll plaza.
