Roundabout at Centre Street and Liberty Street in Concord

The HEAL Active Transportation Program was established in 2013 with the goal to make our roads, highways and streets safer and friendlier for bicyclists, walkers, including people with disabilities, and public transit riders. Active transportation is a key objective of the 2015-2019 Healthy People Healthy Places (HPHP) Plan.


NH Residents have equitable access to options for getting around, and safe, high-quality places to play and be active.

Active Transportation Objective

HPHP Plan Objective #1

All NH communities are built to support walking, biking, and other active transportation options.

HEAL and its active transportation partners are focused on the following strategies:
