Public Input Sought for the NH Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation Plan
Comments Will Help Shape the Department's Vision, Goals, and Objectives for Years to Come

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) seeks public input to help to shape the Department's Statewide Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation Plan. The Plan will provide direction to transportation policy makers regarding access and safety along the State's public roads and trails for pedestrians and bicyclists.

The Central New Hampshire Regional Planning Commission will hold a regional "meeting-in-a-box" event to receive public input for the Plan on Saturday, Sept 28 at the Concord Farmer's Market 8:30 am to Noon.

In addition, the last of 8 Statewide public meeting/outreach events for the public to participate in the planning effort is scheduled for Wednesday, October 2, 2019, 6:00 pm – 7:45 pm at the Portsmouth Public Library, 175 Parrott Ave, Portsmouth.

The public is invited to join NHDOT to learn about the planning process and provide feedback related to:

  • Places you currently walk and ride your bicycle
  • Places you would like to walk and ride but don't feel safe
  • Your goals for the Statewide Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation Plan
  • Prioritizing resources for pedestrian and bicycle improvements
  • Other ideas and comments welcome!

As part of this effort the Department has also developed a website (https://www.nhpedbikeplan.com) where the public can sign up for additional information, participate in an online survey and/or contribute to an interactive map. The interactive map allows users to identify challenging corridors for walking and bicycling, and suggest locations for new or improved infrastructure designed to enhance access and safety for walking and bicycling.

If you have a disability and need accommodations to participate in any of these events, please contact Angela Linke, ADA Coordinator, at 271-7424 or angela.linke@dot.nh.gov.  To ensure that your needs are met, please notify Angela Linke at least 7 days before the scheduled event.
