Town Of Lyme


  As of May 21, 2015 The River Road from The East Thetford Road South is weight limited to 3 tons. 


We have received a report from the Geotechnical Engineer stating the road is inherently unstable at this time. In an attempt to preserve the existing road it is necessary to restrict the weight and stress on the soils below. The engineers are working hard to figure out how to stabilize the road for the long term.  At this time we still need more information and ledge and soil calculations to be able to develop a cost effective and long term solution.

Vehicles over 3 Tons will have to come in from the Hanover end of River Road.  The problem area is 0.2 mile South of the East Thetford Road and 2.9 miles North of the Hanover/Lyme town line.  Emergency Vehicles will be allowed to use the road.

Town Office Hours:

Lyme is a rural community located in the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire along the Connecticut River. Some think our name came from Lyme, Connecticut and others mention Lyme Regis, England. The spelling on the original 1761 charter of "Lime" has been attributed to an error by Governor Wentworth's secretary. The original settlers were from Palmer, Belchertown and Brookfield in Massachusetts. Lyme contains 53.8 square miles of land, 28.7 miles of paved and 38.7 miles of gravel roads. In 2010 it had a population of 1,716.
