Andover – Danbury Public Informational Meeting
Preservation Work for 3 Bridges on US 4 and NH 11

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation will hold a combined Public Officials/Informational Meeting in Andover to present details of a project to complete required maintenance and preservation activities to extend the useful life of two bridges in Andover and one bridge in Danbury.

This public meeting will be held as part of the Andover Selectmen's meeting on Monday, August 21, 2017 at 6:30 pm at the Andover Town Hall, 31 School Street, in Andover, New Hampshire.

The first Andover bridge carries NH Route 11 over Pleasant Stream. The second Andover bridge carries US Route 4 over the Blackwater River nearest the US 4 and NH 11 split. The Danbury bridge carries US 4 over the abandoned NH Railroad corridor (aka Northern Rail Trail) nearest the US 4 and Juniper Meadow Road intersection. The work, to be performed in 2018, will require up to 16 weeks at each bridge to complete and will require one lane of alternating two-way traffic day and night.

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. In addition, this project may have an effect on cultural or historic resources that are potentially eligible for or listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Individuals or organizations with a demonstrated interest in the potential impacts to historic resources have an opportunity to become Consulting Parties under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. Additional information will be provided at the public informational meeting.
