CONCORD, N.H. (AP) Republican Gov. Chris Sununu said his recommended 10-year transportation improvement plan for New Hampshire focuses on preservation, maintenance and safety of existing pavement and bridge infrastructure while “living within our means.”

Sununu released a draft plan to be considered by lawmakers.

The plan, which emphasizes interstate as well as individual projects, assumes a level federal funding of about $185 million a year.

Sununu said the plan doesn't include accelerated project schedules that depend on a toll increase, a proposal that he rejected. He said the plan relies on turnpike toll credits in lieu of a state hard match to federal aid.

He called the plan a “financially constrained document” that addresses the needs that best align with communities, regional planning and advisory commissions, and the Department of Transportation.
