The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) is undertaking a study of alternatives for a potential extension of MBTA commuter rail service from Haverhill, MA to the Plaistow, NH area. The study, which will be conducted by the Department in partnership with Plaistow, Atkinson, and the Rockingham Planning Commission, will examine potential alternatives for a train station and layover facility, and their resultant impacts, including cost-benefit analysis and ridership projections. The NHDOT has engaged a team of design and planning professionals, led by HDR Engineering, to identify possible sites, develop design concepts, and analyze their potential impacts.

The Plaistow Commuter Rail Extension Study has concluded with the completion of an Alternatives Analysis report with accompanying appendices. Provided below is a copy of the Alternatives Analysis report, corresponding appendices, a Rationale Report summarizing the conclusion of the study, and additional air quality assessment information.
