Two projects will share resources to improve a 15-mile section of NH Route 101
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) will hold two Public Informational Meetings 
to present citizens and public officials with information regarding two proposed NH Route 101 
projects. The purpose of these events is to present citizens and public officials with information 
regarding the priority improvements for NH Route 101 within the Towns of Wilton, Milford, Amherst, 
and Bedford. The primary purpose of the projects is to improve safety and address the high-crash 
corridor segments along the 15-mile NH Route 101 corridor.

An environmental review of the project’s potential impacts on natural and cultural resources is 
underway in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act. This project may also 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. Additional information will be provided at
