CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan says permits have been approved allowing off-road vehicles to travel on state highways in Coos County.
In preparation for the Jericho ATV Festival, which runs Friday and Saturday at Jericho Mountain State Park in Berlin, crews from the state Bureau of Trails will install temporary signs along U.S. Route 2 and state Route 16 in Gorham, as well as along Bridge Street in Colebrook and Main Street in Stewartstown.
The Gorham sections of highway will make riding available from Jericho Mountain State Park and the Ride the Wilds' Coos Loop directly to motels and restaurants in Gorham and allow local residents direct trail access from certain town roads.
