HAMPTON -- Local Dunkin' Donuts devotees will no longer have to drive to North Hampton.
A new Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins is now open on Lafayette Road.
The construction of the business was approved by the Planning Board in April.
Concerns over traffic to the doughnut shop, both in the drive-through and parking spaces, dominated the board's discussion. In the end, the board decided traffic on Route 1 was bad already and the addition of a new business would be a boon to the area.
The board granted approval for the project trith certain conditions, including a final review by the engineering firm. Other conditions included moving a crosswalk and modifying the turning radius for cars entering the parking lot.
