(Concord) Citing the importance of the Interstate 93 project, Sen. Sharon Carson, R-Londonderry, is encouraging public input regarding the State’s Ten Year Transportation Improvement Plan. The Governor’s Advisory Commission on Intermodal Transportation will be holding several public hearings over the next two months concerning the plan in Derry, Manchester and Bedford.
Under state law, the New Hampshire Department of Transportation proposes a revised plan for improvements to the state’s transportation system every two years. These revisions become part of the Ten Year Plan that develops and implements a strategy allowing New Hampshire to fully participate in federally-supported transportation improvement projects. It also outlines projects and programs funded with state transportation dollars.
Carson said, “Our ten year plan for 2013-2022 focuses on highway, bridge, rail, transit, and airport projects totaling more than $3.5 billion with a major priority being the reconstruction and widening of I-93 from Salem to Manchester. I want to be sure that those individuals and businesses that will be impacted the most by this much-needed public works project have an opportunity to both listen and be heard.”
