As the state works on the next 10-year transportation plan, Gov. Maggie Hassan wants a long-awaited Interstate 93 exit in the congested areas of Londonderry and Derry to be a priority.

In a letter to town officials, Hassan said she plans to work with the Department of Transportation to look at ways to place a higher priority and accelerate the Exit 4A project as part of the I-93 expansion.

Bill Boynton, department spokesman, said Thursday the project is fully funded in the draft 10-year plan. He said the department is prepared to work with the towns to advance it.

The 10-year plan is developed by the Governor's Advisory Commission on Intermodal Transportation, the Executive Council and the Transportation Department, with input from public hearings. Hassan proposes her version to the Legislature in January.
