F.E. Everett Turnpike Widening Public Meetings Scheduled


Three public informational meetings are scheduled to discuss the proposed improvements to the F.E. Everett Turnpike in Nashua, Merrimack and Bedford. The project begins in Nashua just north of Exit 8 and proceeds northerly to the F.E. Everett/I-293 interchange in Bedford. The project proposes to widen three segments of the turnpike from two lanes to three lanes in each direction. This project is not proposing any work or changes to the toll plazas or exit ramps. The meetings, which will contain essentially the same content, will be held on:

  • Thursday, March 29, 2018 at the Old Bedford Town Hall Complex, 10 Meetinghouse Road, Bedford, NH
    Open House from 5 to 7 PM, Presentation at 7 PM (Live on Bedford Community TV at 7 PM)
  • Tuesday, April 3, 2018 at the Nashua City Hall Auditorium, 299 Main Street, Nashua, NH
    Open House from 5 to 7 PM, Presentation at 7 PM
  • Tuesday, May1, 2018 at the Merrimack High School Cafeteria, 38 McElwain, Merrimack, NH
    Open House from 5 to 7 PM, Presentation at 7 PM

The purpose of these meetings 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, the 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.
