Arrangements have been made by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation to hold a Public Informational Meeting to discuss roadway improvements to approximately 1.7 miles of US Route 1 from Constitution Avenue to Wilson Road and Ocean Road to White Cedar Boulevard. The purpose of the project is to enhance traffic operations and safety along this section of the corridor, using the 2011 US Route 1 Corridor Plan as a starting point.

The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July 25, 2019 at 7:00 pm, with the doors opening at 6:30 pm, at the City of Portsmouth Council Chambers, 1 Junkins Avenue, Portsmouth, NH.

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.

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.
