CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Legislative negotiators have reached a tentative agreement on a 10-year highway plan for New Hampshire.

The House and Senate still must vote on Friday’s agreement, which is one of two measures aimed at making needed highway improvements. Gov. Maggie Hassan signed a 4-cent increase on the gas and diesel tax into law this week. Tax proceeds will pay $200 million of the $250 million needed to finish expanding Interstate 93 from the Massachusetts border to Manchester.

The 10-year highway plan outlines a way to help pay the remaining $50 million needed to finish the Interstate 93 expansion and proposes borrowing money to replace the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge between Portsmouth and Kittery, Maine.
