Public Meeting Set For June 5th In Manchester
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces a public meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday, June 5, 2013 in Manchester to receive input and discuss transportation needs, and preferences for solutions that involve bus and rail options for a 73-mile corridor between Concord, New Hampshire and Boston, Massachusetts.
The June 5th public meeting will be held at Manchester City Hall, beginning at 7:00 pm.
This study will examine rail and bus options to address transportation, economic development, sustainability, quality of life, and environmental issues along the I-93 and Everett Turnpike corridors from Concord to Nashua, with connections to Boston.
The NHDOT is evaluating opportunities to improve inter-city transit service along the corridor through a study funded jointly by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA).
