LACONIA — Rte. 11-C, best known as Lily Pond Road in Gilford, which provides access to Laconia Municipal Airport, is scheduled for improvement this year by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation. City Manager Scott Myers said this week he got word of the planned upgrade from Gilford Town Administrator Scott Dunn.
Altogether some 23 miles of roadway in the environs of the city is tentatively slated to be paved this season. Along with the 1.7 miles of Lily Pond Road, the other include the 6.8 miles of Rte. 106 (Parade Road) from Lexington Drive to the Meredith roundabout; 5.9 miles of Meredith Center Road between its intersections with Rte. 106 (Parade Road) in Laconia and Rte. 104 in Meredith; 3.5 miles of Rte 11-B from its intersection with Rte. 11 (Sawyer's Dairy Bar/Patrick's Pub corner) to the Weirs roundabout; and 5 miles of Rte. 106 South from South Main Street in Laconia to its intersection with Rte. 140 in Belmont village.
The scheduled projects are subject to sufficient funding and pavement conditions.
Last August Mayor Ed Engler and City Councilor David Bownes (Ward 2) City Manager Scott Myers, state Sen. Andrew Hosmer (D-Laconia), met with then commissioner of the DOT Chris Clement at City Hall. Their major concerns included Routes 106, Meredith Center Road and Lily Pond Road.
