Home » Guides » New Hampshire » Route 3A

There are two separate sections for NH 3A. The northern component loops north from U.S. 3 at Franklin along the Pemigewasset River to Hill, Bristol and Newfound Lake and east from West Plymouth along side NH 25 to Interstate 93 in Plymouth. The south section is a 39.4-mile extension of Massachusetts Route 3A north from Hudson to Litchfield, Manchester, Hooksett, Bow and Concord. The southern NH 3A primarily consists of a local route to both U.S. 3 and the F.E. Everett Turnpike.
