Transportation

Transportation is the key to connecting and moving people, goods and services. Transportation planning in the region is funded, in most part, through the NH Department of Transportation with funds from the Federal Highway Administration. The Commission strives to respond to changing social, economic, environmental and demographic conditions of the Upper Valley Lake Sunapee region. Some of the transportation issues facing our region are:

  • congestion in concentrated areas of the Upper Valley
  • maintaining mobility for underserved populations
  • improve pedestrian, bicyclist, and transit accessibility
  • balancing the need for travel with quality of life in small rural communities
  • sustaining funding to address infrastructure needs
