Elwyn Road Side Path Project
The Elwyn Road Side Path Project seeks to create a separated path for shared use by bicycles and pedestrians along the north side of Elwyn Road running from Route 1 on the western end to Harding Road on the eastern. That area is now defined by the land of the Urban Forestry Center which surrounds the buildings associated with the historic Langdon Farm. The south side of Elwyn Road includes the Elwyn Park neighborhood. The project will also provide cross-walks and connections to the multi-use path across the road at intersections from this neighborhood.
This project is being funded in part from grant funds provided by the Federal Highway Administration through the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) program administered by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT).
Based on input at the public meeting, the limits of the path are planned to extend to the existing access road that connects to the Tucker’s Cover neighborhood. This extension required additional archeological and historical review, which is nearly complete. Once completed, the Engineering Study will be submitted to NHDOT in October 2022. Following approval of the Engineering Study, preliminary design will proceed this winter.
