Transportation services provided by the LRPC are primarily funded through contracts with the NH Department of Transportation (NHDOT). DOT funding is derived from federal and state sources. LRPC's Transportation Program has four main components (click on these links to go directly to that component):

Pursuant to RSA 228:99 and RSA 240, the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Intermodal Transportation (GACIT), which is composed of the five Executive Councilors and the Commissioner of the New Hampshire Department of Transportation announces that Public Hearings will be held to review and receive input on the update of the State’s Ten Year Transportation Improvement Plan (2025-2034). 

The purpose of these Public Hearings is to receive public comments/testimony on transportation projects and priorities included in the draft 2025-2034 Ten-Year Transportation Improvement Plan as recommended by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation to GACIT. Those not able to attend the meetings can submit written testimony until November 3, 2023 at 4 PM.
Copies of any documents related to the Ten-Year Transportation Improvement Plan (2025-2034) will be available for review on the NHDOT website prior to the first Public Hearing at programs/ten-year-plan or by contacting the Bureau of Planning & Community Assistance at the Department of Transportation (603-271-3344).

Data Collection/Analysis

Traffic Counts
  • Approved traffic counts are available at NHDOT's website: (
  • NHDOT maintains a Transportation Data Management System which is a web-based interactive map that allows users to customize searches and directly view and download traffic count data on their website here.
  • LRPC performs from 150-200 traffic counts a year, using a schedule developed by the DOT. LRPC can do additional counts and update road inventories for members by request. LRPC is also available to conduct turning movement counts and speed counts on paved roads.
Land Use
  • Land use and transportation are closely related; a change in one aspect could influence the other. LRPC has conducted transportation studies in order to understand the current land use/transportation relationship along vital stretches of the Lakes Region highways. These efforts help support decision making by providing a detailed understanding of how land use effects transportation and vise versa, now and in the future.
Culvert/Stream Assessment Program ​
  • Stream Assessment is a useful tool in sharing asset condition and location for coordinating local projects. Data collection includes: culvert and headwall materials, size, and condition, sediment build-up, scouring and other attributes. 
  • NH Aquatic Restoration Mapper - This is a tool that has been developed for the review of Road and Stream Crossings and can be particularly useful for prioritizing mitigation and prioritization efforts. It identifies some intersections between natural resources and transportation. 
Road Surface Management System (RSMS)
  • A comprehensive review of road network surface condition. Useful in programming improvements and to model funding impacts on pavement condition index (PCI) over time. A perfect complement for your community’s Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) or Capital Improvements Program (CIP).
