Every two years the New Hampshire Department of Transportation updates the Ten Year Transportation Improvement Plan. This year’s draft plan was posted today (pdf) along with the schedule (pdf) of public hearings to receive input on the priorities given to projects in the plan. The hearings are hosted by the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Intermodal Transportation (GACIT), which is composed of the five Executive Councilors and the Commissioner of the New Hampshire Department of Transportation.
More information on the process is contained in the NH DOT brochure on the topic located here.
If you are interested in having a transportation infrastructure that meets more of the needs of New Hampshire citizens and businesses, attend one of the 25 hearings taking place around the state between Monday, September 9th, and Monday, October 21st. Your state representatives are likely to be there, and they would like to hear about your needs and priorities concerning transportation.
Those not able to attend the meetings can submit written testimony within 10 days of the completion of the Public Hearings, but no later than October 31, 2013. Written comments should be addressed to:
William E. Watson, P.E.
Bureau of Planning and Community Assistance
