Bridgewater Hebron NH 3A
Newfound Pathways introduced their vision to NHDOT through a bicycle transportation field review organized by Newfound Pathways Committee member Jan Collins in 2010. Since that time, Newfound pathways has worked tirelessly toward the accommodation of 17 miles of non-motorized connectivity around beautiful Newfound Lake. NH 3A in Bridgewater and Hebron included a specific type of challenge and the Newfound Pathways’ solution was to work toward a re-allocation of pavement space within a 4-mile segment of the narrow paved highway surface in Bridgewater and Hebron. When the time for a periodic ¾” paver shim treatment finally came in the summer of 2015,Newfound Pathways and the communities of Bridgewater and Hebron were ready with an affordable solution for the 4 miles of highway along the eastern shore of Newfound Lake. In the summer of 2015, accordingly, the four-mile stretch of NH 3A became by far the longest stretch of State maintained highway striped with 10-foot travel lanes.
