Traffic on New Hampshire’s turnpike system remains about one-quarter to one-sixth less busy than before the pandemic hit and tollbooth staffing is shrinking, too.

Beginning Friday, April 9, toll plaza cash lanes will be staffed only from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

E-ZPass collections on the state’s turnpike system have been running between 150,000 to 500,000 fewer trips each week since mid-summer, a decline of between 16% to 25% depending on the week.

Overnight, toll plazas will operate at all-electronic tolling, with no cash collection. Drivers without E-ZPass can use the “7-Day to Pay” option through the website www.ezpassnh.com/postpay-trip or contact  (877) 643-9727, or pay in person at the E-ZPass Walk-In Centers in Concord and Portsmouth.

Signs will be hung on the toll booths to notify motorists of these changes and postcards sent to customers outlining new hours.
