This study supercedes the infrastructure study prepared in 1988. This study has evaluated the existing infrastructure and determined what improvements are necessary to meet the needs of the project.

Burlington Waterfront Pedestrian Linkages Study

10 MB
Year:
1993
Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Infrastructure, Transportation
Description:
The City of Burlington has a lively downtown with the picturesque University of Vermont at the top of the hill. A variety of pedestrian connections with sidewalks and alleyways exist between the University and the central business district. However, the central business district and its neighborhoods to the north are physically separated from the waterfront by a steep escarpment north of College Street. The purpose of this study is to begin to re-integrate the city with its waterfront through pedestrian connections.
