12 Community Projects Totaling $5.4 Million

February 6, 2015: The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces 12 New Hampshire communities have an opportunity to improve their pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure through the federally funded Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP).

Six of the twelve winners are locations where HEAL community coalitions are active and working directly with the HEAL team for technical assistance and training.

NHDOT Acting Commissioner David J. Brillhart has approved nearly $5.4 million in awards for the federal share (80%) of local (20%) projects anticipated to cost a total of nearly $7.3 million.

Communities from Nashua to Colebrook and from Dover to Keene will use their awards for projects that include sidewalks, bicycle lanes, multi-use rail trails, and amenities to apply the "complete streets" approach to downtown areas. The overall purpose of the program is to make the "alternative" forms of transportation safe and convenient for short-distance travel.
