Strafford Metropolitan Plannning Organization offers technical assistance and planning related to statewide studies and data collection in the transportation field.
Strafford Regional Planning Commission (SRPC) is expanding its work with recreational trails to develop a publicly accessible regional trails network database.
This project builds off of another trails program through SRPC: MapMyHike. MapMyHike is a free mobile application that the public can use to easily map trails in their area and share the data with SRPC. It is critical to the success of both projects to have continued support from individuals and stakeholders in our region through the mapping and sharing of local trails data using the MapMyHike mobile application. Through this program, numerous trails have been mapped and shared with SRPC that otherwise may not have been recorded.

The purpose of the Exit 10 project along the Spaulding Turnpike and the Route 108 Complete Streets project (from Exit 9 in Dover on the Spaulding Turnpike to Rochester) is to improve key components of the regional transportation system. These two improvements will provide opportunities for access and mobility along Route 108. It will also increase safety, and encourage economic development and active transportation.
The Spaulding Turnpike is a north/south principal arterial highway that serves a vital function for the economy of the Strafford region. The Turnpike is the principal transportation corridor providing a connection with Interstate 95 (I-95). It also connects the cities of Portsmouth, Dover, Somersworth, and Rochester, and its functions as the gateway to the White Mountains and Lakes Region for out of state visitors.
Since the 2010 Census the Strafford region has the fastest growing population in the State of New Hampshire. In recent years the region has seen significant economic development in the Tri-Cities and Durham. To facilitate ongoing economic growth, while promoting a high quality of life in the region, it is essential to provide additional access to the Spaulding Turnpike in the vicinity of the Somersworth/Rochester city limits.
