(Concord, NH) The New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation will hold a public information session to present proposed plans for the construction of a universally accessible trail between the Old Man Viewing Plaza and the Profile Lake boat launch in Franconia Notch State Park.
The session will be held at Franconia Notch State Park’s Park Headquarters on Thursday April 6 at p.m. The trail will be constructed along the shore adjacent to Franconia Notch Parkway (I-93). In locations where there is not enough space between the parkway and the lake a boardwalk will be built using granite blocks in the water to support the decking.
The length of the boardwalk is 670 linear feet and the total trail length is 1,578 linear feet. This project is funded by the Old Man of the Mountain Legacy Fund and is proposed in partnership with the Division of Parks and Recreation.
Public comment will be accepted until Friday April 21, 2017 and can be sent to Johanna Lyons at firstname.lastname@example.org or Division of Parks and Recreation, 172 Pembroke Road, Concord NH 03301.
