Feb. 28—The New Hampshire Department of Transportation will hold two informational meetings on projects to improve a 15-mile section of Route 101.

The projects include sessions in Amherst, Bedford, Milford and Wilton.

One meeting will be held on March 6 at Amherst Town Hall and the other March 7 in the Milford Town Hall auditorium. The presentations will begin at 6:30 p.m.
