On May 2, the state Department of Transportation will host a public meeting on a plan to address growing congestion on a 5-mile stretch of Route 108 from Weeks Crossing through Somersworth and into the Lilac City.
That stretch of roadway now handles more than 13,000 vehicles a day. The $11.36 million project is intended, according to DOT, to improve safety and mobility for drivers, pedestrians, bikers and transit users along this busy stretch of the highway.
“The time is now,” said state Sen. David Watters, D-Dover. “It’s an important process. The DOT has some plans, but their idea is to hear from the public to see if what they’re contemplating comports with the needs of businesses and residents.”
