Year:
2022
Theme:
Park and Ride, TDM, Transit
Description:
Beginning in 2021, the CCRPC embarked on an update of the Chittenden County Park & Ride Plan. This plan identifies opportunities for improvements to the existing facilities and evaluates the potential for new facilities that will benefit commuters and residents throughout Chittenden County and the adjacent communities. The Plan created a vision statement for the purpose and function of park & rides, completed an inventory of existing facilities, prioritized a list of park & ride and intercept facilities, and created an implementation plan. The updated Plan incorporates elements from the 2011 Plan using a revised approach to account for the many changes in the demand for park & rides, remote work, and general changes in travel behavior.

Greenlining Shared Electric Mobility (CarShare VT)

1.2 MB
Year:
2022
Theme:
carsharing, Electric Vehicles, Transportation
Description:
CarShare Vermont used UPWP funding to support our efforts to better meet the transportation needs of households with lower incomes by conducting outreach about the expansion of our carsharing service at four affordable housing developments in the Burlington area, and to promote awareness about our MobilityShare membership, which provides free memberships and subsidized driving rates to residents of the properties (and to all income eligible households in the community). This study helped inform an MTI grant awarded by the Vermont Agency of Transportation in late 2020 to introduce electric carsharing onsite at the affordable housing sites to improve access to both our service and to EVs, recognizing that EV access through ownership may be impossible or undesired for many individuals and households.

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.

Jericho: Bolger Hill Road Supplemental Study, May 2021

2.8 MB
Year:
2021
Theme:
Storm Water, Technical Assistance
Description:
The scope of the Bolger Hill Drainage Scoping project was to provide engineering services for the advancement to conceptual design (25%) of the Alternative #4 Design presented in the January 2020 Bolger Hill Road Drainage Alternatives Study. This project builds on that previous study that investigated drainage issues and evaluated improvement options for Bolger Hill Road in Jericho. A survey was conducted, and conceptual plans were drafted to more accurately develop a cost estimate for improvements to Bolger Hill Road. Further design aspects of the Bolger Hill Drainage Scoping project conceptual design are noted below. The Jericho Center Circle SW BMP Design project is not discussed further in this Design Narrative. The purpose of the project is to provide a roadway and drainage alternative that reduces the erosion that is currently occurring along Bolger Hill Road and to reduce the sediment accumulation at its intersection with Jericho Center Circle. The need for the project is to reduce the gravel, which comes from Bolger Hill Road, that gets washed into the Town Green and abutters properties after large storm events. The Town would also like to improve the water quality in this area.
