CURRENT PROJECTS:

1-89 exit 14 bike/pedestrian crossing study

The Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission is working with the City of South Burlington to identify possible crossing improvements for pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users in the I-89 Exit 14 area, and evaluate the feasibility of those improvements.  The goal of the study is to recommend an alternative transportation crossing option that has the support of the community so that funding may be pursued for engineering, permitting, and ultimately construction.

VT116/KIMBALL AVE./TILLEY DR. LAND USE AND TRANSPORTATION PLAN

South Burlington and the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission are developing a comprehensive Land Use and Transportation Plan for the vicinity of VT 116, Kimball Avenue, Tilley Drive, Kennedy Drive, and Community Drive in South Burlington, Vermont. This Land Use and Transportation Plan will evaluate existing land uses and potential transportation alternatives to address the long-term, multi‐modal transportation system requirements to accommodate a potentially significant level of development within and adjacent to the Project area. The Plan will also develop a framework for developing a Transportation Improvement District (TID) for all or a portion of the Project area to help share the overall financial burden of public transportation infrastructure improvements.

WILLISTON ROAD NETWORK TRANSPORTATION STUDY

The Williston Road Network Transportation Study evaluates the segment of Williston Road between Dorset Street and Hinesburg Road and expands upon work completed previously and documented in the US2 Corridor Transportation Management Plan completed in 2007. The Study seeks to understand how the transportation system in South Burlington will be impacted by future land use objectives associated with the City Center development and other proposed projects in South Burlington. The study develops short, medium and long term transportation strategies for meeting the City’s goals for City Center and the surrounding area.

CONNECTING THE GAPS SIDEWALK SCOPING STUDY

This project combined the scoping of several recreation path/sidewalk projects identified within the City’s Capital Improvement Plan. The following four locations were examined:

  • Allen Road recreation path connections to existing paths
  • Spear Street jughandle recreation path
  • Airport Drive / Airport Parkway to Lime Kiln Bridge Recreation Path
  • Dorset Street Recreation Path Old Cross Road to north of Autumn Hill

Each of these locations were identified as significant gaps in the City’s walk bike facilities. Toole design Group was hired to work with the City to come up with alternatives for each of the gaps.  Final alternatives were presented to the City Planning Commission on September 13, 2016.

CHAMBERLIN NEIGHBORHOOD PLANNING PROJECT

This project will engage residents, airport representatives, City officials, and regional stakeholders in a conversation about land use and transportation in the neighborhood. It will also include conversation about how the neighborhood and Airport can communicate more clearly about interests and concerns. The Chamberlin Neighborhood Planning Project will develop a vision for the neighborhood, as well as short- and long-term strategies for achieving that vision. The outcomes of the study will be documented in a Transportation/Land Use Plan that will be submitted to the South Burlington City Council, and will both serve as the base for next steps in land use and transportation planning in the area; these will also help to inform the Airport’s own planning efforts. A key part of this project is also about establishing communication among all parties, and the study is as much about process as it is about the outcome.
