The Town of
Jericho has three distinct village areas. Jericho’s historic Old Red Mill stands impressively in the Jericho Corners village area next to Browns River on VT Route 15. Jericho Center on Browns Trace still maintains a large Town Green which plays host to a variety of events during the year. The Jericho Town Library is also located here. The Riverside area (also known as “The Flats”) is located on VT Route 15, adjacent to the border with Underhill. It is home to the new multi-use Mills Riverside Park, Deborah Rawson Memorial Library and two schools.
jericho corners to riverside multi-use path
Jericho has been working for some time to improve bicycle and pedestrian connections between key designations throughout the town. One area of interest is to connect the villages of Jericho Corners with the Riverside (also known as “The Flats”). Previous studies considered two options for this connection — a 10-foot-wide shared use path along the southern side of VT 15, and a cross country path that generally follows an abandoned rail bed. This study will further evaluate and refine the previous options and help Jericho to select a preferred alternative.

Riverside Triangle Sidewalk Scoping
CCRPC worked with the town of Jericho and Stantec to evaluate completion of the sidewalk system in an area known as the Riverside Village triangle – the area bordered by VT15 to the west, River Road to the south, and Park Street to the east. This area is targeted for development as a Village Center with mixed land uses. To date, the Jericho Market and the Union Bank have been constructed, and 200 feet of sidewalk was constructed in front of the grocery store. There are no other pedestrian facilities on the east side of Vermont Route 15 to the north.
Over the last 10 years, the Town has constructed sidewalks on the west side of Vermont Route 15 and crosswalks at Vermont Route 15 and River Road and one at Raceway Road and Vermont Route 15. The proposed extension of the sidewalk on the east side would complete the connections around the triangle, on both sides of Vermont Route 15 as well as expand connections to Mills River Park, Raceway Road, Browns River Middle School and the Deborah Rawson Library on River Road.

vt 117/skunk hollow intersection scoping study
The VT 117 and Skunk Hollow Road Scoping Study was a collaborative effort by the CCRPC, VTrans, the Town of Jericho, and VHB to identify a preferred alternative which addresses safety and mobility concerns at the VT 117/Skunk Hollow Road intersection. This study arrived at a preferred alternative through the traditional scoping process: existing conditions assessment, alternatives development and evaluation, public and stakeholder input and selection of a municipally preferred design. The final report was completed in December 2018.
