SECOND PHASE PLANNED FOR CHOCORUA

by Christian Mower on December 18, 2013

THE VILLAGE OF CHOCORUA IN TAMWORTH IS MOVING FORWARD WITH THE SECOND PHASE OF MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS DESIGNED TO MAKE THINGS SAFER FOR WALKERS AND DRIVERS.

THE FIRST PHASE – COMPLETED ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO – USED ABOUT $1 MILLION OF FEDERAL GRANT MONEY TO IMPROVE PARKING AND SIDEWALKS. NOW BIDS ARE BEING ACCEPTED FOR PHASE TWO THAT WILL FOCUS ON SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS.

JOSH McCALLISTER – A SENIOR CIVIL ENGINEER WITH HEB ENGINEERS IN NORTH CONWAY – THE COMPANY ACCEPTING PROJECT BIDS ON BEHALF OF TAMWORTH – SAYS ONE PART OF THE PROJECT WILL BE TO INSTALL NEARLY TWO DOZEN ENERGY EFFICIENT BUT HISTORIC LOOKING LIGHTS ON VILLAGE SIDEWALKS.

HE SAYS ANOTHER MAJOR IMPROVEMENT WILL MADE AT TWO INTERSECTIONS ON CHOCORUA RD., THE FIRST AT ROUTE 16.

PLANS ALSO CALL FOR IMPROVING THE DRAINAGE SYSTEM AND PUTTING UP BETTER ROAD SIGNS.

THE WORK IS ADMINISTERED THROUGH THE NEW HAMPSHIRE DEPT. OF TRANSPORTATION USING FEDERAL HIGHWAY FUNDS. THE LATEST PHASE IS EXPECTED TO BE COMPLETED BY THE SUMMER OF 2014.
