Bedford told a widened Route 101 delayed
Town Manager Jessie Levine met with managers from the New Hampshire Department of Transportation on Wednesday and was told that the Route 101 widening project will likely go out to bid in the fall of 2016, with construction starting in the fall of 2017.
“That is a safety issue,” said state Rep. John Graham, noting the roadway gets lots of traffic.
Graham acknowledged that it will be an aggressive plan to have all of the permitting ready for construction in 2017.
“I think the town has been staying on top of what has been happening,” said Graham, explaining there will be future opportunities to discuss with the Executive Council about moving the project ahead. An informational forum is planned for early 2014, with a public hearing in the spring of 2014, Levine said.
Local and state officials briefly discussed other endeavors on Thursday, including the state’s biennial budget, potential surcharges on hybrid and electric vehicles, possible upgrades to the city’s wastewater operations and transfer station, school funding and more.
