Portsmouth, NH, eyeing adding bike lane on stretch of road
PORTSMOUTH - The city is holding a meeting for public input on a proposed bike lane to parts of Middle Street and Lafayette Road.
The project was initially identified in the City's Safe Routes to School Action Plan in 2010 and was also highlighted as a high priority project in the City's Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.
The project area extends approximately 1 mile along Lafayette Road and Middle Street from Andrew Jarvis Drive at Portsmouth High School to the intersection with Congress, Islington, and Maplewood Streets.
It is being funded by a grant from the NHDOT Safe Routes to School Program
The city currently has about two or three miles of bike lanes.
The meeting is scheduled for Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. at the Portsmouth Middle School.
