Hampton Combined Public Officials/Public Informational Meeting

NHDOT will discuss proposed improvements to NH 1A in the Town of Hampton

Arrangements have been made by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation to hold a Combined Public Officials/Public Informational to discuss this project that will make transportation improvements to NH 1A in the Town of Hampton. The initial study area will extend 3.5 miles from the Hampton Harbor Bridge to NH 27 (High Street), with specific project type(s) and location(s) to be determined during the early stages of the project. The project may have an adverse effect on cultural or historic resources that are potentially eligible for listing 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 during the meeting.

The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 2, 2021 at 6:00 pm. Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, the NHDOT will conduct the meeting virtually via Zoom. The Project Team will use Zoom breakout rooms to facilitate smaller conversations during the second half of the meeting. Please register ahead of time and let us know which room you would like to join. This will help us plan for and staff the rooms.

Presentation materials and the link to the registration page will be located on the NHDOT website.

The purpose of this meeting is to present citizens and public officials with information regarding the proposed project and to solicit public input to ensure that project decisions meet public transportation needs and community goals, and to 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.
