Depot Intersection Project
- Lead department: Community Development
- Project manager: William Scott
- Funding: Depot Trust Fund - NHDOT
The plans will integrate a Route 28 redevelopment plan, a capacity improvement traffic plan and a zoning programming to create redevelopment opportunities while addressing the highway constraints. The alternative under consideration would maintain the 4-way traffic signal controlled operations at the Depot intersection. It would include providing exclusive left-turn lanes on all four approaches with two through lanes in each direction on Route 28 and a single through lane in each direction on Route 97. Connector roadways or internal parcel-to-parcel connections would be provided where possible on each of the four quadrants of the intersection. Access to the properties would be enhanced with traffic signal controlled intersections located on Route 28 at Willow Street (north of the Depot) and in the vicinity of the old Coke facility (south of the Depot). Along Route 97, access to the properties and connector roadways would be provided at Pleasant Street (west of the Depot) and at Church Street (east of the Depot).
