Forest service seeks input for study of White Mountain roads
CAMPTON - The U.S. Forest Service is asking the public to weigh in as it studies the road system in the White Mountain National Forest.
At a series of public meetings, the service wants to know which national forest roads are important to people and why.
The study will look at the characteristics of all the roads and how they're used. It will consider future management needs, public access, environmental risks and maintenance costs.
The service said the number of overdue road maintenance projects continues to grow, while public use is increasing.
The study won't result in a final decision but will help guide planning.
Public meetings are scheduled for March 24 in Gorham, March 31 in Conway and April 8 in Campton. All are from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
