Thornton Public Informational Meeting

NHDOT is seeking public input on the proposed work and traffic plan.

Arrangements have been made by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) to hold a public informational meeting to discuss the rehabilitation of the red list bridge carrying NH Route 49 over the Madd River in Thornton, NH.   
The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 29, 2023, at 6:30 pm at the Thornton Town Hall, 16 Merrill Access Road, in Thornton, NH.  The NHDOT will present the proposed deck replacement design and traffic control strategy.  The public is encouraged to attend and ask questions. 
The purpose of this meeting is to present citizens and public officials with information regarding the project and to solicit input to ensure that the project decisions meet the public transportation needs, community goals, and protect and enhance the environment.  The 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. 
NHDOT programs and services will be administered in accordance with the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and all applicable regulations to ensure nondiscrimination.  Anyone needing mobility assistance, sign language, foreign language interpreter services, or information in alternate formats must contact the NHDOT Bureau of Right-of-Way, NHDOT, PO Box 483, Concord, New Hampshire 03302-0483, or call (603) 271-3222 – TDD access: Relay NH 1-800-735-2964.  Notification for the need for assistance must be made at least seven business days prior to this meeting.
