23.7 MB
Year:
2023
Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Intersection, Safety
Description:
This supplemental scoping memo builds upon the 2016 Huntington Lower Village Bicycle and Pedestrian Scoping Study conducted by DuBois & King. The prior study identified several alternatives to address the safety challenges in Huntington's Lower Village but did not result in a preferred alternative that could be moved forward. This supplemental scoping effort was initiated in 2019, was disrupted by the global pandemic in 2020, and was completed in June 2023 when the Huntington Selectboard endorsed a preferred alternative for improvements. This memo summarizes the supplemental scoping effort.

2021
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. Public meetings and targeted outreach were also conducted to gather input from residents, property owners, and business owners along the corridor. 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.

Year:
2021
Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Infrastructure, Safety, Sidewalk, Transit, Transportation
Description:
Final report available here: https://www.oldspokeshome.com/one-mobility-audit The Old North End (ONE) is Burlington’s most economically, ethnically, and socially diverse community. The historically working-class neighborhood is a vibrant collective of arts, food, small business, and community-centered services, and is home to much of Burlington’s lower-income and migrant populations. This neighborhood mobility audit by the Old Spokes Home (bike shop and non-profit) sought to identify transportation investments that will improve pedestrian, bicycle, and transit access for traditionally underserved residents within the ONE to area jobs and essential services. A survey of those residents helped the project team to understand residents’ specific experiences, needs and barriers. Recommendations are made to enhance walking, biking, and transit connections to area jobs and essential services (e.g., shopping, educational centers, medical care facilities, etc.) at a neighborhood level, as well as suggestions on how to involve and engage traditionally underserved populations in planning projects.
