VT15 Bicycle/Pedestrian Study, Ethan Allen Ave. to West St. Extension, Essex and Essex Junction

latest news

Final Report Available (July 31, 2018)

The VT Route 15 corridor from Winooski to Essex Junction and beyond is recognized as a primary transportation corridor that lacks sufficient bicycle facilities. Much progress has been made in recent years to address this. In Essex Junction, from West Street Extension to the Champlain Valley Exposition, bicycle lanes have been added to VT Route 15 by converting the four lane section to a three lane section with a center left turn lane. For the VT Route 15 section from Limn Kiln Road to Susie Wilson Road, a shared use path is currently being designed and needed acquisitions and easements are being pursued. This study focuses on the remaining VT Route 15 section from Susie Wilson Road to West Street Extension.
