CONCORD (AP) - As the holiday travel season gets under the way, the state is seeking public input on how to improve the rest areas and welcome centers across New Hampshire's roadways.
The Departments of Transportation and Resources and Economic Development are kicking off a series of public hearings Tuesday, starting at the transportation headquarters in Concord. Four more hearings will be held through early January in Keene, Lebanon, Lancaster and Seabrook. Dates and locations are available on the departments' websites. Written comments can be mailed to DRED through mid-January.
Officials say they want to know how services can be improved at the centers, which vary in size and service across the state. Nine are open year round, three operate seasonally and four are currently closed.
