Public Listening Session for NH Route 108 Complete Streets Project
Proposed Improvements to 5 Miles within Dover-Somersworth-Rochester

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) will hold a Public Listening Session in Dover on Monday, March 18, 2019 to discuss proposed improvements to NH Route 108 in Dover, Somersworth, and Rochester.  The public is invited and encouraged to attend to provide input on potential improvements.

The March 18th Public Listening Session will be held in the Renaissance Room at the Dover Middle School, 16 Daley Drive in Dover, beginning at 7:00 pm and ending at 9:00 pm.  A short presentation will be followed by open discussion of ideas and dialogue between the public and the NHDOT project team.

This project involves the study of improvements to NH Route 108 from the intersection of NH Route 9/Indian Brook Drive in Dover to Innovation Drive in Rochester, a distance of approximately 5 miles. The objective of the project is to develop a design alternative that will improve the safety and mobility of all users by applying 'Complete Street' principles, with the central goal of achieving an appropriate balance between the needs of motorized, non-motorized, and transit users of the corridor. 

Interested property owners, public officials, employers and roadway users are welcome and will be given the opportunity to provide input on the project.

Any individuals needing assistance or auxiliary communication equipment due to sensory impairment or other disability should contact the Bureau of Right-of-Way, NHDOT, PO Box 483, Concord, NH 03302-0483 or call 603-271-3222.  TDD access: Relay NH 1-800-735-2964. Notification of the need for assistance must be made at the earliest convenience.

Historic properties may be impacted by the project.  Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act offers those that possess a direct interest in historical resources, including town officials, Historical Societies, and Historical Commissions, an opportunity to become more involved in an advisory role during project development as "Consulting Parties."  Those interested should contact the NHDOT.
