Route 3 Corridor Improvements

Concord, NH


About this Project

For the City of Concord, NH, FST prepared a corridor study for improvements to a 5.4 mile stretch of Route 3. The study involved preparation of improvement alternatives and their impacts/costs, monthly coordination with a project Steering Committee and neighborhood public meetings. FST recommending dividing the corridor into nine priority areas that could be scheduled to meet the City's capital improvement plan. The study and its recommendations were approved by the City Council and adopted as the primary planning tool for implementing construction projects along the corridor.

FST subsequently designed the first three segments recommended by the corridor study.  Each segment included a new traffic signal, sidewalks, bicycle lanes, new drainage systems and bus stops.
