US 2

 

The Route 2 Corridor Transportation Management Plan:

Burlington, South Burlington, & Williston

The main goal of the Route 2 Corridor Transportation Management Plan (Plan) was to craft a unified vision for the future of US Route 2—from South Willard Street in Burlington, through South Burlington, to North Williston Road in Williston—and develop strategies to address short, medium and long-term transportation needs along the corridor as well as assess the impact of land use patterns in the study area.

The Plan recommends a comprehensive and multimodal approach to satisfy the future Vision and Goals of the corridor. It offers coordinated highway, transit, bicycle, pedestrian, land use and streetscape strategies to improve the operation and enhance safety and aesthetics of the corridor in the study area.

The project was funded by Chittenden County Metropolitan Planning Organization (CCMPO) and directed by a steering committee consisting of professional staff from Burlington, South Burlington and Williston, the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans), Chittenden County Transportation Authority (CCTA), Burlington International Airport (BIA), and Campus Area Transportation Management Association (CATMA). A larger stakeholder group consisting of elected and appointed officials from the municipalities, CCMPO, VTrans, CCTA, and CATMA provided overall policy guidance and review of major products and recommendations.

The general public also had several opportunities (through numerous public workshops and meetings) to provide their input and help shape the Vision, Goals, and Strategies for the corridor.
