Two Public Hearings on Proposed N.H. Toll Increases This Week


Members of the public will get another chance to weigh in this week on a new proposal to raise the state’s highway tolls.

The proposal was initially scheduled to get a final vote last week but was postponed by Gov. Chris Sununu to get more public input.

The plan calls to increase tolls statewide by an average of 27 percent. That would raise an estimated $36 million annually for infrastructure improvements.

There's a hearing Tuesday at the state Department of Transportation headquarters in Concord at 6 p.m.

The following day there's a hearing at 7 p.m. at Manchester City Hall.

The Governor's Advisory Committee on Transportation plans to vote on the proposal December 20th. But it will still have to go before the Executive Council for final approval.
