METHODOLOGY:

This bill requires the Department of Transportation install a multimodal sidepath along a portion of NH Route 122.  The Department estimates this project would incur engineering and permitting costs of $648,000, which would be expended between FY 2021 and FY 2023, as well as construction costs exceeding $5,600,000, but not until FY 2025 (anticipated year of construction).  Potential right-of-way costs cannot be estimated at this time.  The Department’s estimates assume the following assumptions:

  • Costs adapted from Amherst "Village-to-Oval Multimodal Sidepath Project" (2019) and adjusted to account for water quality treatment requirements and limited reuse soil handling.
  • Sidepath is assumed to be 10’ wide and provide a minimum 5’ offset from the edge of NH 122.
  • Improvements to major intersections are assumed to include such measures as rectangular rapid flashing beacons with appropriate signs, crosswalk markings, detectable warning devices, and lighting.
  • Improvements to minor intersections are assumed to include such measures as crosswalk markings, signs, detectable warning devices, and possibly speed tables.
  • Traffic calming is assumed to include such measures as roadside landscaping, distinctive signing, pavement marking, and strategically located median islands.
  • Engineering cost will include topographic survey, design, environmental review and permitting.
  • Project will have substantial impacts upon right of way.
  • Current year construction total cost adjusted to year of construction (2025) by including 10% indirect costs and annual inflation of 2.3%.
