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.

Western Vermont Corridor Transportation Management Plan ~ Final Report

21.3 MB
Year:
2010
Theme:
Corridor, Freight, Rail, Western Corridor
Description:
The purpose of the Western Corridor study is to evaluate transportation, land use and related conditions and create a Transportation Management Plan that presents a unified, long-term vision for managing and improving the transportation system in western Vermont. As an initial effort to coordinate planning over a vast study area, the plan does not recommend specific projects. Rather, it presents a broader vision and framework for transportation investment policies and strategies. Continuing the ongoing collaboration among the study partners will be key to developing and implementing specific projects and programs consistent with the recommendations of this plan. The plan is being coordinated with the Vermont Agency of Transportation’s ongoing project development efforts in the Corridor, including various railroad initiatives.

Milton Town Core Transportation Plan

3.4 MB

2008
Theme:
Technical Assistance, Transportation
Description:
The purpose of this study was to conduct a system-wide assessment of traffic flow and congestion along US 7 and the local streets within Milton’s town core. The system-wide assessment was necessary to develop a set of coordinated roadway and intersection modifications that support local goals. Transportation projects will most likely be designed and constructed one at a time by the Town, State, or private developers. The goal of this study was to ensure that each individual project, regardless of the year it is built and the public or private entity that builds it, helps achieve an overall plan for the study area.
