LANCASTER — Representatives from the state Department of Transportation be at the Jan. 15 Coos County Delegation Meeting to present plans for a project to improve a 1.3-mile segment of N.H. Route 16 extending north from just north of the Dummer-Cambridge town line.
The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. at the North Country Resource Center, at 629 Main St. in Lancaster.
The purpose of this meeting is to present citizens and public officials with information regarding the proposed project and to solicit public comments to ensure that project decisions meet public transportation needs and community goals, and protect and enhance the environment.
According to the announcement of the meeting, the project entails providing a sustainable roadway that maintains the connectivity of the corridor, minimizes long-term maintenance and risk resulting from its proximity to the Androscoggin River, and preserves the scenic quality of the surrounding area.
This project may have an effect on cultural or historic resources that are potentially eligible for or listed on the national register of historic places. Individuals or organizations with a demonstrated interest in the potential impacts to historic resources have an opportunity to become consulting parties under Section 106 of the national Historic Preservation Act. Additional information will be provided at the public informational meeting.
