NHDOT Road Maintenance – Main Street

The Select Board has noticed that the  NHDOT has begun its planned work on Main Street.   The project as originally presented to the town this past winter emcompasses maintenance resurfacing of Main Street as well as ensuring handicapped access to/from the sidewalks.   The town has not been notified of the current schedule but anticipates that the sidewalk work will be followed by the resurfacing work.

NH DOT Publishes 2016 List of Red List Bridges

The NH DOT has recently published the 2016 update of municipally-owned red list bridges.  The Old Mill Lane bridge over Rollins Brook remains a red-listed bridge.  Earlier this year the Select Board  requested that the replacement of the temporary bridge (installed in 2013) be placed on the NH DOT state-aid bridge list.  Bridges on this list are jointly funded by the NHDOT and the municipality with the state providing 80% of the costs of design, ROW and construction.  Within the next several months, NH DOT will be providing the town with an estimated project cost for the replacement of the Old Mill Lane bridge.  While the bridge replacement is already on the town’s Capital Improvement Plan the estimated cost has been a wild guess.   We will adjust the CIP with the state’s estimated project costs when we receive them.

Please note that up until 2016, the Oak Street bridge (over the RR tracks) has been a red-listed bridge assigned to Rollinsford.  The Select Board worked with the NHDOT to remove the Oak Street bridge as a municipal-owned bridge and to place it on the state-owned bridge list.
