Goffstown officials want new Exit 7 on I-293
The state Department of Transportation’s fourth public meeting took place June 11 at Manchester Community College. The I-293 Planning Study addresses the possible reconfiguration of Exit 6 and a new full-access Route 7 North interchange to Route 3A, and to Dunbarton Road and/or Goffstown Road in Manchester.
“Of the alternative’s presented by DOT at the public hearing, Goffstown has expressed its strong support for either Alternative 10a or 10b. These options would provide the most direct and efficient connections between the turnpike and Goffstown Back Road,” Adams said. “Alternative 10b is preferable as it provides connections to both Goffstown Back Road and Dunbarton Road, allowing for distribution of traffic to and from the northerly and westerly areas of town.”
“At our meeting Monday night (June 17), we took the first important steps in developing plans to attract new industry and business to our town in order to help offset the burden placed on residential taxpayers. It will be a complex process that will focus on providing expanded infrastructure that is so critical to attracting new business. Included in that infrastructure expansion is improved access to major highways and a relocated Exit 7 is a perfect example and a good place to start,” Adams said.
The plan’s technical advisory committee includes representatives from the state DOT, the Federal Highway Administration, the Southern New Hampshire Planning Commission, the city of Manchester, the chambers of commerce from Goffstown, Hooksett and Manchester, Manchester Community College, and State Sen. David Boutin, R-Manchester.
