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.

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.
