Adopt a Paving Project

Want wider shoulders on your favorite bike ride?

Is there some place that would benefit from a lower speed limit?

What about better signs alerting motorists to the presence of bicyclists?

Your best time to make these suggestions for a particular location is a few months in advance of a paving project. Lucky for you, the NH Department of Transportation has published a paving schedule online. (Big shout out to the folks at NHDOT for doing that!)

Here’s a guide to finding your project and identifying the person to receive your suggestions.
