Grant goes to Dover to improve transportation
DOVER, N.H. (AP) — Several members of New Hampshire's Democratic Congressional delegation have announced a grant aimed at improving transportation networks in Dover.
Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan and Rep. Carol Shea-Porter said the $649,000 grant will improve the city's transportation infrastructure through the use of advanced technologies. Among other things, the grant will allow the city to implement a system that should improve the transportation networks efficiency and safety by improving data collection at the Central Avenue traffic stops. The money will also go toward improving highway efficiency by integrating the New Hampshire Department of Transportation's Traffic Management Center in Concord to Dover's traffic control system.
The goal of the project is to improve traffic conditions by diverting traffic to alternative routes in the city when an incident arises on Spaulding Turnpike.
