US Route 7 Milton Corridor Study

37 MB
Year:
2017
Theme:
Corridor, Transportation
Description:
This study focused on evaluating the transportation needs and developing multimodal improvement strategies to accommodate the anticipated growth along the US 7 corridor (Forbes Road to Main Street) in Milton. This corridor has experienced considerable commercial growth in recent years and is expected to see continued development into the future. The Study developed recommendations concerning highway configuration, traffic control, access management, public transit, and pedestrian and bicycle accommodations. Transportation conditions and needs were evaluated from a “Complete Streets” perspective and the study recommends actions to better accommodate all users of the corridor. The final plan identifies improvements that could be implemented in the near-term for relatively low cost, as well as potentially longer-term improvements involving larger-scale physical changes to portions of the corridor.

Climate Change Campaign – CarShare Vermont

219.3 kB
Year:
2017
Theme:
Climate, Environment, TDM, Transportation Demand Management
Description:
In Vermont, transportation accounts for over half of all green house gas emissions. Driving less is arguably one of the most impactful and immediate personal changes that Vermonters can make to reduce their emissions but a number of factors make it challenging for Vermonters to make this important connection and ultimately change their transportation behaviors. CarShare Vermont designed a community-based social marketing campaign to help people better understand the impact of their personal transportation choices on climate change, and to demonstrate how relatively modest shifts in transportation habits can meaningfully combat climate change. More specifically, we wanted to showcase how utilizing a service like CarShare Vermont allows people to own fewer cars and consequently drive less, making greenhouse gas emissions reductions easier to sustain over the long-term.

Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, car-sharing, Transit, Transportation, Transportation Demand Management
Description:
In 2011 the CCRPC, in collaboration with CarShare VT, Chittenden Area TMA, Local Motion, and Green Mountain Transit, was awarded a Transportation, Community and System Preservation (TCSP) grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to launch a Chittenden County Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Pilot Program, which features ready-to-implement TDM activities to meaningfully improve transportation system efficiency, reduce VMT, improve air quality, reduce traffic congestion, improve access to employment, and enhance the livability of our communities. The suite of complementary projects included creating two regional multimodal transit hubs, developing a regional walk/bike program, developing an employee transit pass pilot project, establishing a TDM circuit rider, launching a marketing program to change transportation behavior, and expanding the existing car-share service in Chittenden County.
