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. 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.

Project Update

Thanks for your interest in the NHDOT Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation Plan. The project team is currently working with Regional Planning Commissions (RPC) staff and members of the NHDOT Complete Streets Advisory Committee (CSAC) to develop a draft network, policy/program recommendations, and ultimately, developing a full draft plan for public review next spring. Stay tuned for more information!

The video below is a recording from the September 22, 2020 meeting with RPC staff to discuss draft network development.
