Notice of Upcoming Road Work - Sharon Road

September 12, 2017: Please be advised of upcoming paving work to begin in late September or early October on Sharon Road starting at Simpson Road and ending at the cul-de-sac. The work will consist of reclaiming the existing pavements, regrading the roadbed, compacting the materials, adjusting basins as necessary, and then two layers of new asphalt put in place. All driveways will be adjusted to meet the new pavements, as needed, and shoulders will be either graveled or loamed and hydro seeded to complete the work. There may also be some brush and/or tree work done, as needed, to accommodate the equipment, improve site distance and remove low hanging limbs. Equipment may also be left overnight on the shoulders of the road and hopefully within the Town right-of-way.

We ask if you have sprinkler heads or other items in the right-of-way that you either mark them or remove them temporarily to allow for the work to be done. Anything within three feet of the edge of pavement may be disturbed during the grinding and paving process. Both the Town and the contractor will try to accommodate what we can, but there are limitations and if we don’t see or know where things are we cannot be held responsible for damages.

There will be delays as the work progresses of maybe a few minutes due to equipment and men in the road, but there will be one lane open for travel at all times possible. We ask that you please be cautious of the workers and watch for the flaggers as they try to direct the traffic through the work areas.

If you have any questions or concerns prior to the start of, or during, the work phase please call the Highway Department at 603-216-5676. Thank you for your time and considerations.

Important Notice from the Town Clerk

 NEW HAMPSHIRE DIVISION OF MOTOR VEHICLES TO CLOSE OFFICES FOR TWO-DAYS DURING SOFTWARE UPGRADE

CONCORD, NH – The NH Department of Safety, Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will implement a new driver licensing system in October to replace the current system originally implemented in the 1980s. Implementation of the new system will require the closure of all DMV offices on Monday, October 9th and Tuesday, October 10th and will temporarily limit some services. 

“Although temporarily closing DMV offices is required during this transition time, we are aware of how the closure will impact our customers,” said DMV Director Elizabeth Bielecki.  “Hopefully, by providing advanced notice, we will minimize the inconvenience this closure will cause.”

During the transition:

  • Town/City Municipal clerks will not be able to process the state portion of vehicle registrations from Friday, October 6, through Tuesday, October 10. 
  • Online services, including Online Driver License Renewal and Online Ticket Pay, will not be available from Wednesday, October 4, through Wednesday, October 11. 
  • Ticket pay by phone will not be available on Monday, October 9, and Tuesday, October 10. To pay a ticket by phone on another day during normal business hours, please call 1-800 272-0036. 

Customers are encouraged to complete DMV transactions regarding driver licenses and registrations in advance of expiration dates if they expire during the transition period.

In the days following implementation of the new system, customers may experience longer than usual wait times and are asked to plan their visit accordingly. 

Save time by completing forms in advance of your visit. Answers to frequently asked questions and forms are available at the DMV website at www.nh.gov/dmv.

What does this mean for Windham? 

This means the Town Clerk's office will not be able to complete your vehicle regsitrations. We can do a town portion and complete half of the registration, and then you will have to complete the state portion, at a state substation. The schedule during this transition is as follows:
