Mechanic Street Community Meeting

posted May 22, 2014, 1:38 PM by Lebanon NH
On Tuesday, May 27, 2014 at 6:00pm, residents are invited to a neighborhood/corridor meeting being held at Lebanon College, (Room 5) 15 Hanover Street, (on The Mall) Lebanon, NH. The meeting is to provide information on the Mechanic Street Reconstruction Project.

Some of you may have attended the introductory meeting held at at the Carter Country Club last September, or walked the construction area during our walkabouts last October. With construction planned to begin late in 2015 or early in 2016, we are undertaking the beginning stages of design. Surveyors have been on the ground gathering additional topographical information and establishing the Right of Way along the streets where the work will occur.

At the meeting on the 27th, we will have representatives from City Staff along with the City’s Engineering Consultant, Fay Spofford and Thorndike (FST) providing a brief overview of the project. Conceptual Roadway Layouts will be available for viewing. This will be an opportunity to review road widths, discuss sidewalks, traffic patterns, drainage issues, intersections, etc. The results of these discussions will help to narrow-down design alternatives along the corridor and at key intersections. Please join us in the conversation and provide us with your comments, ideas, and suggestions.

Please keep in mind that we are in the initial stages of design, so there is still a lot of work to be done before finalizing the plans for construction. As you know, Mechanic Street is a major travel route; your input is vital to making this project a success. I encourage you and all of your neighbors to attend. Beyond the residents and businesses located on the corridor, we are inviting and encouraging all residents, and members of City Council to join the conversation, so please spread the word, and we’ll to see you all on the 27th.
