Bethlehem Public Informational Meeting
Box Culvert Replacement on US 302 (Main St.)

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) will hold a combined Public Officials/Public Informational Meeting in Bethlehem to explain the need to replace an existing multi-material culvert with a new concrete box culvert, which carries a tributary of Barrett Brook under US Route 302 (Main Street). The project scope includes reconstructing approximately 600 feet of US 302 from NH 142 (Maple Street) to Congress Street, including improvements to parking lots on the north side of US 302.

The project is scheduled for construction in 2018 and will include phased construction maintaining traffic with lane shifts.

This public meeting is scheduled for Monday, January 9, 2017 at 7:00 pm, at the Bethlehem Town Hall, 2155 Main Street, Bethlehem, NH.

The purpose of this meeting is to present citizens and public officials with information regarding the proposed project and to solicit public input in order to ensure that project decisions meet public transportation needs, community goals, and protect and enhance the environment. Accordingly, NHDOT assures that this project will be administered according to the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and all related statutes to ensure nondiscrimination.

This project may have an effect of historic properties. Owners of properties determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places that abut the project alternatives may have an opportunity to become consulting parties. Additional information will be provided at the public informational meeting.
