South Burlington Walk Bike Bridge Connections
The City of South Burlington received a federal grant to design and construct the East-West Crossing Project, a walk bike bridge over I-89, to provide a safer and more comfortable crossing of I-89. The South Burlington Walk Bike Bridge Connections project will examine the new bridge connections to the neighborhoods and businesses on both sides and become an integral part of the City’s transportation network.

williston rd./dorset st. intersection lane assignment evaluation
In collaboration with City staff, the CCRPC started to evaluate the possibility of lane reassignments at the Williston Rd/Dorset St Intersection. In FY19, CCRPC staff conducted a review of previous studies related to the intersection, assembled traffic modeling data including traffic volumes and signal timing plans for base and future year scenarios to develop a microsimulation model in Transmodeler and reviewed optimized signal timing plans and potential lane use reconfigurations. A technical memo with findings and recommendations will be completed in FY20.
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.
