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 and functional reasons, this bridge will require significant improvements, perhaps outright replacement, in the not-too-distant future.
The CCRPC hired the engineering consultant firm of McFarland Johnson to undertake a scoping study – to identify site constraints and recommend crossing alternatives. They will be assisted by RSG for traffic analysis and Hartgen Archeological Associates for cultural and historical resource impacts. The project will also be overseen by an advisory committee of interested parties. The membership roster of this committee, along with the project’s scope of work, project schedule and first Advisory Committee meeting’s presentation are all available at the links below.

There will be a number of opportunities for public participation throughout this project, beginning with an alternatives presentation and local concerns meeting in the fall of 2017. Please check back for more information or contact the project manager below.
