Welcome to the New Hampshire Statewide Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation Plan web site. The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) with our partners Alta Planning + Design invite you to help us plan for the future of walking and bicycling in the Granite State! Throughout 2019, we are asking for the public’s input on ways that the state can improve pedestrian and bicycle safety, and encourage walking and cycling for both recreation and transportation.
While the state is currently blessed with 470 miles of rail trails and greenways, a particular focus of this plan is to develop a network of bike facilities on state roadways and to infill gaps in the sidewalk network. Your input into the interactive map and online survey below will help to inform the consultant team’s analysis and recommendations. Ultimately, the state’s first formal pedestrian and bicycle transportation plan will articulate new policies, programs and infrastructure projects intended to increase walking and bicycling in all regions of New Hampshire.
Interested in improving walking and bicycling conditions in New Hampshire?
If so, NHDOT and the state’s Regional Planning Commissions invite you to a series of public meeting and outreach events to discuss the Statewide Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation Plan at eight locations in September and early October. (Note that a final meeting and webinar for the project will be held in Concord in the winter.)
At the events, NHDOT’s consultant team, led by Alta Planning + Design, will provide an overview of the planning effort, the results of their analysis of current on-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities, and provide a blueprint of available infrastructure improvements that could enhance safety and connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists. Participants will also have the opportunity to mark-up large scale maps of the Granite State’s various regions to let the planning team know which roadways and intersections need improvements in the future.
