It is critical that City Council hear from YOU right NOW by email on the I-93 expansion project. NHDOT will give their presentation on I-93 expansion to City Council tomorrow night - 10/11 City Chambers 7-11pm. TPAC has issued recommendations to City Council and the Mayor announced his plan to request funding from Council for a deck park/river bridge feasibility study by a firm specializing in deck parks. All will be discussed. Show up to show your support for highway minimization and a deck park/river bridge/MGRT boardwalk for Concord! (This is a public meeting but with no public comment - your presence will be felt.)
Weigh in NOW by writing to City Council!
Minimize highway widening - 8 lane expansion is unacceptable.
Focus on fixing bridges and interchanges.
Obtain a deck park/river bridge feasibility study by a firm specializing in deck parks (to include deck park alternatives with comparable benefits).
Ensure highway plans do NOT preclude deck park/river bridge (or comparable) opportunities.
Design the highway with a designated speed at 55 mph not 70 mph.
Design the expansion around the current traffic needs - not outdated data.
Improve safety design at interchanges for bikes/pedestrians.
Reduce the barrier effect of the railroad.
Provide more accommodation and safety considerations for bicyclists and pedestrians especially around multi-lane exits.
Provide barrier protected bike lanes on major commuting routes.
Provide plans clearly demonstrating "transitions" that tell drivers they are leaving the highway and entering a low speed city or neighborhood environment.
Include high quality streetscaping and landscaping at all interchanges.
Engage in a robust public process including workshops & charrettes - MUCH has changed in Concord since 2019!
