DPW Survey Invites Public Comment on Fleet Street Reconstruction Design

December 15, 2021

Portsmouth DPW is launching an online survey to collect feedback from residents and business/property owners as to what they would like to see in the sidewalk and roadway reconstruction plan for the Fleet Street Area Reconstruction Project.

DPW will post signs along Fleet Street and on Hanover, Congress and State Streets in the project area, as well as the Hanover Garage. The weatherproof signs include sketches of the design options and a QR code that links to a page on the City website with more detailed drawings and the link to the online survey itself.

The Fleet Street project includes replacement of the underground utilities and reconstruction of the roadway and sidewalks in the area of the blocks between Hanover and State Streets. Once complete, the reconstruction offers the opportunity to widen the sidewalks, limit parking and/or traffic flow, and add landscaping and features such as benches and tables. The survey is designed to determine which options City residents and project abutters prefer. The survey is open to the public; though the responses of those who live, work or own property on Fleet Street are being identified and tracked as a subset of the response. The City is working with Underwood Engineers to complete this work.

The City continues to keep property owners and tenants in the affected areas informed of the project via the City website, a targeted mailing list and other outreach efforts. For more information about the project, click here.
