Candia-Raymond Public Officials/Public Informational Meetings

Meetings will be held in both towns to solicit public input on proposed bridge preservation work

Arrangements have been made by the Department to hold combined Public Officials/Public Informational Meetings to discuss the planned bridge preservation of the Route 27 bridge over the North Branch River, Bean Brook, and Lamprey River in the Towns of Candia and Raymond.  The preservation work will consist of pavement and membrane removal, partial and full depth deck repairs and the installation of crack control joints.  There will also be traffic control associated with this project with the potential for a short term closure of the Candia bridges.

Two meetings are scheduled; one on Monday, June 21 at 6:30 pm at the Raymond High School Media Center, 43 Harriman Road in Raymond, New Hampshire as part of the regularly scheduled Selectboard’s meeting, and the other on Monday, June 28 at 7:00 pm at the Town Office Meeting Room, 74 High Street in Candia, New Hampshire as part of the regularly scheduled Selectboard’s meeting.

The purpose of this meeting is to present citizens and public officials with information regarding the proposed project and to solicit public input in order to ensure that project decisions meet public transportation needs, community goals, and protect and enhance the environment.  Accordingly, NHDOT assures that this project will be administered according to the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and all related statutes to ensure nondiscrimination.

This project may have an effect on cultural or historic resources that are potentially eligible for or listed in 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 officials/public informational meeting.
