Road Construction

The City of Laconia DPW oversees improvements for approximately 100 miles of roadway and adjacent sidewalks. Each construction season, certain roads and sidewalks are selected for improvement. The selection criteria is based on a number of factors, including the current condition, traffic count, funding, and the need for contiguous utility work.
