CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Department of Transportation says it wants to widen a section of Interstate 93 in Concord.
NHDOT officials say the project would reduce traffic and improve safety on the stretch of highway road. WMUR-TV reports the public saw a virtual rendering of the proposed $262 million project at a public meeting Thursday.
Officials say the proposed construction would likely not begin until 2024, and the project still needs additional federal and state funding approval.
Three members of the governor’s Executive Council will review the plans and public input and will give their opinion on whether it should move forward.
