Driving from North Wolfeboro to Ossipee, there is a parallel road called "Old Route 28" which appears and disappears in discontinuous segments.

Is there a history of this road anywhere?
The "new" Alton road was just about finished in 1966 just when you started driving. You began driving just in time to save travel time, but obviously the road is not as scenic. They opened sections of it at a time before that.
