CCRPC Bicycle Count Data Analysis and Count Program Design Strategies

1.9 MB
Year:
2022
Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Transportation
Description:
In 2017, the CCRPC completed an update of the region’s Active Transportation Plan (ATP) with the goal of creating “a safe, comfortable, and connected regional network of pedestrian and bicycle routes that appeal to all ages and abilities.” Developing a “robust” bicycle count program was one of the key non-infrastructure recommendations in the ATP. The UVM Transportation Research Center (“TRC”) was contracted to evaluate current bicycle data collection efforts in the region, identify gaps and limitations, and make recommendations on how to develop a comprehensive bicycle count program that could better support the region’s bicycle planning objectives.

Transit Financing Study

1.9 MB
Year:
2021
Theme:
Transit
Description:
With the passage of the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, there is expected to be a 35% increase in transit funding above the FAST Act investment levels; additional resources at the local level to serve as matching funds will likely be needed. Rather than just continuing to lean on existing sources of revenue, this renewed need for local funding offers the opportunity to overhaul how transit is funded both in the Chittenden County metropolitan area and in the rural parts of Vermont.

Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Intersection, Safety
Description:
The Colchester Avenue: Bikeways, Parking, and Intersection Safety Study was conducted in coordination with the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission, City of Burlington, and an Advisory Committee consisting of community stakeholders.

The goal of this study was to identify transformational, long-term improvements along the Colchester Avenue corridor and at the intersection of Colchester Avenue and East Avenue that re-envisions the multimodal gateway corridor following years of incremental change outlined in previous planning and design efforts. The study focused on consistent, multimodal improvements for the one-mile long corridor from the connection with Pearl Street at the intersection of North and South Prospect Streets, east to the Greenmount Cemetery, then north to Barrett Street and the Winooski River crossing. In addition, the study pursued safety improvements for the intersection of Colchester Avenue and East Avenue.
