Interstate, Traffic, Transportation
The Town of Colchester, the Chittenden County Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Vermont Agency of Transportation partnered in an effort to develop short and medium term transportation improvements for the US 2/7 corridor at the Exit 16 interchange. The goal of these improvements is to alleviate congestion and improve public safety which will consequently allow this commercial district to fully develop. The purpose of the study is to develop and evaluate design alternatives that increase safety, reduce traffic congestion and support economic growth in the US 2/7 (Roosevelt Highway) corridor at the I-89 Exit 16 area in Colchester. This study follows the 2009 Exit 16 Circulation Study which helped identify corridor issues and develop viable alternatives for improvements that were effective, yet reasonable in terms of impacts and costs. This scoping study further analyzes traffic impacts, explores design alternatives in detail and determines resource impacts for each alternative including detailed cost estimates.
