  • Transportation,

The NH 12 North Corridor is one of eight major transportation corridors in the Southwest NH Region, facilitating north-south traffic movements between Keene and Walpole.  In addition to NH 12 this Corridor also includes parts of NH 63, and 123 as well as non-numbered State routes in Walpole, Westmoreland, Keene, Surry, and Alstead – the five Towns identified as part of the Corridor.  This corridor is important for commuting, tourism, commerce, and other reasons.  The NH 12 North Corridor connects much of the Southwest Region with major cities in northern New England and Canada via I-91.

Compared to other corridors in the Southwest Region, NH 12 North has more transportation modes than most, including some sidewalk infrastructure, access to the Greyhound Bus, some limited local transit, passenger and freight rail access, and the Cheshire Rail Trail.   

Is this corridor part of your regular commute? Are you satisfied with current travel conditions or do you feel that improvements and investments are necessary to improve traveler safety and convenience or comfort?  Do you wish there were better transportations options in this area such as enhanced public transit?  Would you like to see improved conditions for cyclists and pedestrians?

If you have questions, comments or concerns about transportation on the NH 12 North Corridor, please attend the meeting on Wednesday October 26, 2022 at 6:30 p.m., hosted by SWRPC.  At the meeting, SWRPC will present information about existing conditions on the Corridor and then take feedback from meeting participants regarding transportation challenges, opportunities for improvements and project ideas.  Comments and local knowledge from users of the Corridor are critical for understanding our Region’s transportation needs, and comments will be used to inform the update of SWRPC’s Long Range Transportation Plan, Southwest Connects
