Village Piscataquog River Pedestrian Bridge

Overview

The Village Piscataquog River Pedestrian Bridge Ad Hoc Committee was created by the Goffstown Select Board in July 2020 to explore opportunities and obstacles for constructing a pedestrian bridge across the river in the location of the old railroad bridge that was destroyed by fire in 1976.

The Committee's evaluation shall result in a report detailing the feasibility of constructing a pedestrian bridge in the location of the old railroad bridge across the Piscataquog River in the Village.

The report should include considerations for property acquisition/swaps, design elements and budgeting estimates, and suggestions funding mechanisms.

This Ad Hoc Committee will not design a pedestrian bridge at this location. This Ad Hoc Committee's mission is to study the feasibility of constructing a pedestrian bridge at this location.
