DOT Public Outreach Meeting- NH Rest Areas & Welcome Centers

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED) will host a public outreach meeting on January 5 from 4-6 pm, at the Seabrook Library, 25 Liberty Lane, Seabrook, to hear public comment about New Hampshire’s Rest Areas/Welcome and Information Centers. There are two such rest areas in this region – in Seabrook on the northbound side of I-95 just north of the Mass border, and in Salem similarly located on I-93 just north of the border.

The sessions are part of a detailed study on New Hampshire’s 16 state-owned Rest Areas/Welcome and Information Centers. (See attached map.) The study will assess traveler uses and needs, identify needed improvements, and help inform future planning for the Welcome and Information Center system. The goal of the meeting is to solicit feedback on how these centers affect the local and regional communities.

Your participation is important to this effort and will help ensure that the study result reflects the interests and needs of this region. Please pass along this invitation to others who may have insight on how communities interact with these facilities.

Please go to www.visitnh.gov/wicstudy for more information about the study and to see a map showing the location of all 16 rest areas.
