winooski main street revitalization project

The City of Winooski is planning to complete a full reconstruction of the Winooski Main Street corridor from the New England Central railroad bridge north to the Colchester Town line (approximately 4,000 feet). The reconstruction project includes upgrades to existing water, wastewater, electric and telecommunication, stormwater, roadway, streetscape, traffic, and landscape elements within the public right-of-way. Community input is vital in deciding how this project supports Winooski’s Municipal Master Plan, Transportation Master Plan, forwards the intention of the City’s Form Based Code zoning, and benefits the long-term needs of the community.

WINOOSKI RIVER BRIDGE SCOPING STUDY

Beginning in the spring of 2017 and extending into next summer, the CCRPC, along with the Cities of Burlington and Winooski and other partner organizations, and the public, will start an important project that connects the two cities. The bridge over the Winooski River is approaching 90 years old and nearing the end of its expected useful life. For both structural, as well as functional reasons, this bridge will require significant improvements, perhaps outright replacement, in the not-too-distant future.

WINOOSKI TRANSPORTATION MASTER PLAN

The Winooski TMP will seek to balance all modes of transportation within the existing public right-of-way and will provide a comprehensive list of roadway, transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and streetscape improvement recommendations that satisfy the overall vision for the City of Winooski. The Winooski TMP will be visionary but it will also include an action plan with low-cost improvements that the City could advance in the short term.
