New Hampshire Statewide Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation Plan


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.

Interactive Map


In the late summer/early fall 2019, the general public will be invited to a series of community meetings throughout New Hampshire in order to review the planning team’s analysis and initial recommendations and to provide feedback. Details of the eight community meetings will be posted to the website and emailed to those who sign up to our email list. Meeting locations are likely to include: Littleton, Laconia, Hanover, Keene, Manchester (or Bedford), Nashua, Dover and Portsmouth. Additionally, a final presentation on the draft final recommendations and project prioritization will be held in Concord in early 2020.
