Project Summary

NHDOT developed the design of the bypass of the Anna Hunt Marsh and Charles Dana Truss Bridges over the Connecticut River between Hinsdale, New Hampshire and Brattleboro, Vermont. As NH Route 119 is a critical east-west corridor connecting northern New Hampshire and Vermont to Interstate 91 in eastern Vermont, this project was viewed as a candidate for discretionary funding under the USDOT TIGER grant program. Development of the application included solicitation for political support for the project from elected officials, documentation of the purpose and need for the project, developing a detailed Benefit-Cost Analysis (BCA) as well as preparing content relative to anticipated project costs, schedule, sustainability, social and economic benefits, life safety benefits and other characteristics of the project. All materials were submitted through USDOT’s grant program website by NHDOT. NHDOT has requested $20 million through the grant program to cover approximately 40% of the anticipated $50 million construction costs.
