MANCHESTER, NH — Later this month, a portion of Maple Street will be temporarily reduced to one travel lane as part of a short-term pilot project to study one potential method of slowing down traffic on Ward 2’s “neighborhood highways.”

To learn more about the temporary changes coming to Maple Street, you are invited to attend a neighborhood meeting at 6 p.m., May 16, at Mt. Carmel Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, 235 Myrtle St.

During the month of June, the Department of Public Works (DPW) is scheduled to pave Maple Street between Pearl and North streets. Prior to completing this work, DPW and the Planning & Community Development Department will reduce the two vehicular travel lanes down to one vehicular travel lane and one bicycle lane.

DPW staff and I will be on hand at the meeting Thursday to discuss the timing of this pilot project, as well as how it will be implemented and evaluated. After the completion of the pilot project, a second neighborhood meeting will be held to get feedback on the temporary change and the impact it had on travel and the neighborhood.
