Because of its central location between the state's capitol and the seacoast, Route 4 gets significant
commuter traffic on weekdays and sometimes oppressive traffic from locals and tourists on weekends.
Traffic bottlenecks during peak periods at the traffic circles (round-a-bouts) in Lee and Epsom.
Where practical, consider using Route 101 in Manchester during peak periods.
These directions presume you are traveling east from Concord.
