The CCRPC regularly conducts a variety of regional and local transportation projects, and multiple projects are active at all times. Projects range from smaller in scale, such as Technical Assistance requests like Traffic Counts, to larger in scale, such as a Scoping Study that moves a recognized problem from an idea through the development of a solution. Below, please find a listing of current projects, separated by program category. Click on each program category for more complete information and details.

Corridors & Circulation
Corridor & Circulation Studies review and analyze current and future corridor conditions; develop corridor vision and goals; and develop and evaluate strategies to address congestion, safety and other issues within the corridor and area of influence. The CCRPC further conducts Circulation Studies which address critical congestion and safety needs for all modes along a segment of a regional corridor.
Visit the Corridor & Circulation Studies page for a complete project listing and more information on studies in your area.
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is the application of technology to improve the operations of our transportation system. Specifically ITS is the use of telecommunications and computing technology to boost the efficiency of roadway, transit and emergency and maintenance vehicle response systems, and provide timely information on travel options.
Visit the ITS page for a complete project listing and more information.
Scoping & Project Development
Project “Scoping” is the phase in the Project Development process that moves a recognized problem from an idea through the development of alternatives and environmental screening.

TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE OPPORTUNITIES INCLUDE:
- Traffic Counts | The CCRPC can conduct both manual and automatic counts for vehicles as well as bicycle and pedestrians. This data is used for local projects and in the regional transportation model. For more information, contact Chris Dubin at (802) 846-4490 x 112.
- Traffic Control Warrant Analysis | The CCRPC can help municipalities assess whether or not an intersection meets the necessary criteria for a traffic control device. Contact Sai Sarepalli at (802) 846-4490 x 116 for more information. Click here to access all studies in our online library.
- Technical Assistance Studies | The CCRPC has resources available for municipalities to examine smaller scale transportation issues, complete bicycle/pedestrian plans, assist with project development and coordination, update previous studies and more. Contact Bryan Davis at (802) 846-4490 x 117 to learn more. Click here to access the Technical Assistance studies in our online library.
- Safety Studies | The CCRPC works with municipalities and VTrans to address roadway safety issues through programs such as the High Risk Rural Roads and Road Safety Audit Reviews. Contact Sai Sarepalli at (802) 846-4490 x 116 for more information. Click here to view a list of Safety studies in our online library.
- Aerial Imagery and Digital Terrain Models | The CCRPC continues to work with Vermont Center for Geographic Information (VCGI) to obtain high resolution aerial orthoimagery for Chittenden County. For more information, please contact Pam Brangan at (802) 846-4490 x 122.
- Signage Inventories | The CCRPC is available to assist municipalities in updating or completing an inventory of transportation signage. For more information, contact Chris Dubin at (802) 846-4490 x 112.

Contact Jason Charest at (802) 846-4490 x 132 for more information.
The CCRPC regularly conducts Corridor and Area-Wide Studies of significant regional and local corridors as well as areas planned for growth in Chittenden County. Corridor and Area-wide transportation planning is a comprehensive, proactive, collaborative approach that provide communities the opportunity to plan for their future and develop implementable strategies that address the community’s transportation needs and realize its vision.
Visit the Area-Wide page for a complete project listing and more information on studies in your area.
One of the CCRPC’s transportation planning focus areas is Active Transportation, which refers primarily to walking and biking. The CCRPC is committed to planning for walking and biking in our communities.
Visit the Walk/Bike page for a complete project listing and more information on studies in your area.
The CCRPC keeps an up-to-date online listing of archived transportation planning studies. Visit the CCRPC Studies & Reports Database for more information.
