The CCRPC is working with the City of Burlington to identify options to improve connectivity for low-stress bicycling in the southwest section of the Old North End – one of Burlington’s densest, New American neighborhoods. Working with the Department of Public Works and the community, the final report (anticipated Spring 2020) will include conceptual designs and conceptual cost estimates for the preferred route(s) connecting Battery Park, the Old North End Neighborhood Greenway, the Depot Street Neighborhood Greenway, and the Lakeview Terrace Neighborhood Greenway. In addition to bikeway connectivity, this project will also identify opportunities for improved pedestrian crossings, stormwater management, and should preserve parking wherever feasible.
