Southern Gateway Scoping Study

Shelburne’s US Route 7 Southern Gateway, between the intersection of Marsett/Bostwick and Ridgefield Road, is an area of growing economic activity. It is also an area of long-standing and growing use by pedestrians. For many years, certain seasonal employees of Vermont Teddy Bear Company unable to access transit have walked along US 7, which has no sidewalks. More recently, customers of new businesses located along either side of US 7 have begun to cross the highway in a zone with relatively high speed vehicle traffic and no marked crossing. Residents also travel the area on foot. This study would examine pedestrian patterns, identify problems, and propose viable solutions.
