Project Process

NH Route 108 Dover-Somersworth-Rochester 29604

This project is following the standard NHDOT project development process. The project is currently in the Preliminary Design phase, during which project design alternatives will be developed and analyzed for impacts. At the conclusion of the analysis, a recommended design alternative will be identified. Environmental documentation will occur in the form of an Environmental Document. Preliminary Design will be complete when the recommended alternative is presented at a formal Public Hearing and the Environmental Document is approved by the Federal Highway Administration.

The next phase of the project will be Final Design, during which final engineering plans will be developed, right-of-way/easements will be acquired as needed, and construction contract documents will be prepared. Final Design is complete when the project is advertised for construction bids and is awarded to a contractor. The start of construction is based upon available funding, contractor schedule, and weather.
