Road Safety Audit Applications Due 12/1/16

The NHDOT is accepting applications from communities for Road Safety audits (RSA) as part of the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) which focuses on small construction projects that can reduce fatalities and serious injuries on New Hampshire roads. RSAs are safety performance examinations by a multidisciplinary team to identify improvements that can then be implemented through HSIP in the near term (2-3 years). To be selected for a RSA, the location must have experienced at least one fatality or serious injury crash in the past ten years. For full eligibility requirements and an application form, visit NHDOTs Highway Safety Improvement Program web page, or contact Dave Walker at RPC. Applications are due to NHDOT by December 1, 2016 and RPC staff is available to assist with crash data analysis.


RPC Traffic Count Program

In the RPC region there are approximately 1,200 NHDOT designated traffic count locations. Each year the RPC receives a list of approximately 130 count locations that NH DoT would like to be collected. The RPC traffic count cycle is nearly 10 years, which leaves many locations with no relevant data. The RPC publishes a map with the count locations and the counts which have been conducted in the last 10 years (semi-relevant time frame). 

In addition, the RPC maintains traffic count equipment and staff to be able to conduct periodic counts and traffic studies requested by member communities beyond the NHDOT mandated counts.  The counters can be set to count direction, vehicle type and, to a lesser extent, speed. The RPC is limited by equipment to the number of locations it can count in a year.  For additional information regarding traffic counts please contact Robert Pruyne at RPC.


NHDOT Announces Final I-93 CTAP Funds 

NHDOT has released a request of proposals under final phase of the I-93 Community and Technical Assistance Program (CTAP).  The scope of CTAP Phase 3 is much narrower than prior phases, focusing on projects that will increase future transit use in the I-93 corridor. Eligible activities include fostering Transit Oriented Development (TOD), expanding/improving intercity and local transit services, and expanding Rideshare programs/strategies. Eligible CTAP communities in the RPC region are:  Salem, Atkinson, Hampstead, Sandown, Danville and Fremont, as are CART and Boston Express.  Individual communities and public entities may apply, but the RFP strongly encourages collaboration between CTAP communities, transit providers and others in developing proposals. Proposals must be within $150,000 and $250,000, including a 20% cash match. Questions about the RFP are due to NHDOT on 9/1 and proposals are due on 10/14.  The RFP is available on the NHDOT website. Contact Scott Bogle or Cliff Sinnott at the RPC to discuss potential proposals.
