The Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC), in partnership with the City of Burlington Department of Public Works, is conducting a corridor scoping study of Battery Street between Maple Street and Sherman Street. The study will identify improvements to support all modes of transportation, adjacent parks, adjacent businesses, stormwater, and enhance the street as a gateway between the downtown and waterfront districts. This study will include all signalized intersections along Battery Street and identify how improvements will align with the Railyard Enterprise Project and Great Streets Main Street Project.
