Middle St / Lafayette Rd Bicycle and Pedestrian Corridor Project


The goal of this project is to make travel along a critical section of Route 1 safer and more appealing for pedestrians and bicyclists of all ages. Initially identified in the City's Safe Routes to School Action Plan in 2010, this project was also highlighted as a high priority in the City's recently completed Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.

The project, which received funding from a NHDOT Safe Routes to School Grant, will evaluate options for creating an on-road bike route along Route 1 between the High School and Downtown.

Pedestrian crossings at the intersections along this corridor will also be assessed to determine where improvements might be necessary to improve safety and accessibility. The City is working with an engineering team led by Greenman-Pedersen, Inc. on this project. For more
