This 2009 Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (FSEIS) focuses on proposed changes for portions of the previously approved Burlington Southern Connector/Champlain Parkway Project. The approved project involves the construction of approximately 2.3 miles of highway known as the Southern Connector/Champlain Parkway, commencing at the interchange of I-189 with Shelburne Street (U.S. Route 7), and extending westerly and northerly to the City Center District (CCD) within the City of Burlington, Chittenden County, Vermont. Previously, a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) (FHWA-VT-EIS-77-02-F) was completed in 1979, with the approval of a Selected Alternative by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). One section (the C-1 Section, which is approximately 0.6 miles in length) of the 1979 Selected Alternative has been constructed, but has never been opened to vehicular traffic as its intended function.
