NH Capitol Corridor Alternatives Analysis and Service Development Plan

Welcome to the New Hampshire Capitol Corridor Alternatives Analysis and Service Development Plan (NH Capitol Corridor Study) website.  This project website describes the NH Capitol Corridor Study process, and provides background information as well as information on participating in the project or otherwise providing feedback on the study.  As the study advances, additional documentation will be added so as to be transparent with stakeholders and the general public.

 

The project will include an study of potential rail and bus transit investments in the NH Capitol Corridor, which connects the major population centers of New Hampshire to metropolitan Boston, and the development of a service development plan and related documents for intercity passenger rail between Boston, MA and Concord, NH.  This study will be taking a multimodal, systems-wide approach in the development of the alternatives that will be considered.  The NH Capitol Corridor extends 73 miles between Boston and Concord. Rail facilities within the corridor include existing Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) commuter rail service between Boston and Lowell, MA and Pan Am Railways, Inc. freight service between Lowell, MA and Concord, NH.  In addition to the existing rail infrastructure, highway corridors that are under consideration for commuter service investment include the US Route 3/Everett Turnpike corridor and the I-93 corridor in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Both of these highway corridors are served by commuter and intercity bus service.
