Press Release

MTP Variance Request Packet

The City of Strafford is requesting two OTO Major Thoroughfare Plan variances along Route 125.

The public is invited to comment on a variance request for the Major Thoroughfare Plan (MTP). The MTP is part of Transportation Plan 2040 and outlines functional classifications of roadways with design standards to achieve those functional classifications. The City of Strafford is requesting two variances for a development on the east side of Route 125 just north of Route DD. This portion of Route 125 is classified as a Primary Arterial, which requires 110 feet of ROW. The request is to limit the Right-of-Way required to 40 feet from centerline (as opposed to 55’). Additionally, the city is seeking a variance to access spacing and design standards. The request is to allow the right-in/right-out driveway to function as a full access driveway until such time as traffic conditions warrant a median.
