Pursuant to NH RSA 230:14 and Public Law 100-17 (Surface Transportation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act of 1987), a public hearing has been set to discuss the proposal to replace the existing red list, twin-pipe bridge that carries Georges Mill Road over Star Lake Outlet (Br. No. 091/048). The Georges Mill Road improvements will include approximately 725 feet of roadway reconstruction and intersection widening at Stryker Road and Fisher Corner Road to better accommodate truck turning movements. 

The hearing will be held at:

at 6:00 P.M.

The venue will be open at 5:30 pm for the inspection of plans by any interested persons.

On November 10, 2021, the Governor and Executive Council approved the petition of the NH Department of Transportation to convene a public hearing to determine whether there is the occasion for the laying out of this project and acquiring necessary rights-of-way.  A Commission of Three Persons was appointed to conduct the hearing and its members are John Simonds, Jessica Hatch and Bruce Temple.

Maps, plans, the environmental studies, and other pertinent information developed for the Department, along with written reports received because of the coordination with other agencies, are available at the Department of Transportation at the John O. Morton Building, 7 Hazen Drive, Concord, New Hampshire for inspection and copying.  Please call Jennifer Reczek, Project Manager, at (603) 271-3401 in advance for an appointment.
