New Hampshire Route 125 is a 51.994-mile-long (83.676 km) north–south state highway in Rockingham and Strafford counties in southeastern New Hampshire. It runs from Plaistow to just north of Milton. Although most of the road consists of only two lanes, NH 125 is a major north–south highway with heavy truck and tourist traffic, especially in the summer months, when the road is used as an alternate route between Interstate 495 in Haverhill, Massachusetts and the Spaulding Turnpike in Rochester.

The southern terminus is in Plaistow at the Massachusetts state line, where the road continues southward as Massachusetts Route 125. The northern terminus of NH 125 is in the village of Union (town of Wakefield) at New Hampshire Route 16 and New Hampshire Route 153.

In the Rochester-Milton area, the road parallels the Spaulding Turnpike and is known as Milton Road in Rochester and White Mountain Highway in Milton. The Epping-Lee-Barrington section is known as the Calef Highway, named after Senator Austin L. Calef who owned the locally famous Calef's Store in Barrington.[citation needed]

The road between Epping and East Barrington (the intersection of NH 125 and NH 9) was built on the grade of the Boston and Maine Railroad's Worcester, Nashua and Portland Division, opened by the Nashua and Rochester Railroad in 1876.

Route description[edit]

Going north, Route 125 continues from Haverhill, MA into Plaistow, NH. Route 125 goes directly north, without going east or west much. It has concurrency with Routes 107 and 111. Then it crosses Route 101 at exit 7. After that, it crosses US 4. Then it closely follows Route 16 and parallels the Maine border, until it ends at Routes 153 and 16 in Wakefield.
