Town concerned over traffic increase from tradeport activity

September 24, 2018

GREENLAND, N.H. (AP) — Residents of a New Hampshire town say the Pease International Tradeport is causing traffic headaches.

Greenland town officials say they blame the Pease Development Authority and Portsmouth for worsening Route 33 traffic during commuting hours. The Portsmouth Herald reports Greenland’s selectmen and Planning Board have sent a number of letters on the topic, noting that every key intersection is backed up.

PDA Executive Director David Mullen recently estimated there are 10,500 people who work at Pease International Tradeport. Greenland officials say any planned expansion of the tradeport should come with a plan for addressing traffic concerns on Route 33.

The Planning Board and selectmen will hold a joint meeting Oct. 4 to discuss the traffic problem.
