New Hampshire Route 236 is a short, 2.07-mile (3.33 km) east–west state highway located entirely in the city of Somersworth. Its western terminus is at an intersection with New Hampshire Route 108 west of downtown. Its eastern terminus is at the Maine state line, where the highway crosses the border into Berwick, Maine overlapped with New Hampshire Route 9. The roadway continues into Maine as Maine State Route 9.

Some older signs in downtown Somersworth sign NH 236 as a north–south highway, but recent signage is indicative of its overall east–west orientation.

Route description[edit]

NH 236 begins at NH 108 in western Somersworth and initially travels due east. Upon reaching downtown, the highway turns to the north and intersects NH 9 (High Street). NH 236 joins NH 9 and the two routes continue through the downtown area, before crossing the Salmon Falls River into Berwick, Maine just 12 mile (0.80 km) to the north. NH 236 ends, but its continuation, Maine State Route 236, begins less than 14 mile (0.40 km) past the state line, splitting from SR 9 in the town center of Berwick. No concurrency is signed on the Maine side, resulting in a short gap between the two highways signed solely as SR 9.

NH 236 runs through the western side of Somersworth, and is known as West High Street. Cosigned with NH 9, it runs along High and Market Streets.

Junction list[edit]

The entire route is in Somersworth, Strafford County.
