Josiah Bartlett Center - Avoiding Gridlock

Josiah Bartlett Center Tackles Transportation in New Hampshire

“Avoiding Gridlock” will address Granite State transportation issues

The Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy will address one of the most complex, expensive, and misunderstood problems in New Hampshire government next week.  The free panel discussion, “Avoiding Gridlock-Planning Today for NH's Transportation System Tomorrow", will address the thorny challenges of how Granite Staters get around, and how to pay for roads, rail, and bridges. 

Avoiding Gridlock” will be on Monday, April 12th from 9am to 11am at the Holiday Inn on North Main Street in Concord.

Panelists for this lively forum will include:

  • Harry Blunt, President, Concord Coach Lines
  • Michael Izbicki, Executive Director, New Hampshire Rail Transit Authority 

Josiah Bartlett Center President Charlie Arlinghaus will moderate.

“The Ten Year Transportation Plan is one of the most important, and least understood, documents in New Hampshire government,” Arlinghaus says.  “By bringing together experts with widely varying perspectives, we want to give the Legislature and the people of New Hampshire a better understanding of how we set transportation priorities for the next decade.”

The panel discussion is free and open to the public.  For more information, contact Charlie Arlinghaus at the Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy at (603) 491-1991, or visit
