U.S. Route 4 Corridor Management Study

UVLSRPC Projects

Project Administrator:

Project Title:

U.S. Route 4 Corridor Management Study

Related Services:

Transportation

Project Summary:

In 2006, UVLSRPC convened a team of local, regional, and state officials to examine existing and future conditions along U.S. Route 4 from Interstate 89-Exit 17 to the Canaan/Orange town line. The resulting U.S. Route 4 Corridor Management Study, published in February 2007, identified short and long-term strategies to prevent or reduce future traffic congestion along U.S. Route 4 as economic development occurs throughout the region.

The U.S. Route 4 Corridor Management Study outlines a four-pronged approach for improvements:

  1. Addressing existing infrastructure deficiencies.
  2. Addressing intersection congestion through the implementation of alternative capacity improvements.
  3. Managing future growth and development by implementing access management techniques.
  4. Managing future transportation demand through the implementation of a travel demand management program for the corridor.

Since the U.S. Route 4 Corridor Management Study was published, a number of the study's recommendations have been implemented. A realignment of the intersection of U.S. Route 4 and NH Route 4A in Lebanon will occur as part of a project to replace the nearby bridge over the Mascoma River. The Town of Enfield is developing an access management plan for the section of U.S. Route 4 between Baltic Street and the Enfield/Canaan Town Line, and a project to improve safety on U.S. Route 4 between the Lebanon/Enfield town line and the intersection of Maple/Main Street in Enfield is the region's top priority for inclusion in the next Ten-Year Transportation Improvement Plan.
