PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - Officials from several New Hampshire communities are meeting with Pan Am Railways to discuss the possibility of transporting propane through their towns.

Portsmouth City Manager John Bohenko told the Portsmouth Herald (https://bit.ly/1fV5ZP9) that the private meeting will be held Wednesday and will include officials from Portsmouth, Newington, Greenland and Stratham. Those are the communities that could be affected if a plan to expand a propane terminal in Newington is approved.

Bohenko says officials particularly want to talk about potential capital improvements to the tracks to handle any increased traffic. Officials in other towns say they also are concerned about safety.

The Newington Planning Board is scheduled to take up the terminal expansion plan March 10.
