Colchester Inspection and Inventory of Existing Stormwater System

12.6 MB
Year:
2019
Theme:
capital planning, Stormwater
Description:
Hoyle, Tanner & Associates, Inc. completed stormwater structure and pipe condition assessments and recorded collected data in Town GIS format for future integration with the Town’s Asset Management Program. The overall stormwater infrastructure refurbishment need was identified and a Capital Budget Program for Stormwater Infrastructure was developed for future refinement by Town Staff to aid in future infrastructure planning efforts. Results of a Top Down pipe condition analysis - completed based on pipe material, typical service life and estimated installation year - broadly estimates $5.1M in stormwater infrastructure capital budget need. However, the results of the pipe segment Zoom Camera condition assessments indicate that approximately 75% of this $5.1M in stormwater infrastructure capital budget need had a “Pass” rating. This reveals that a significant amount of the stormwater infrastructure, although exceeding a typical service life, has some service life remaining. There were also Stormwater Pipe Segments that had an Emergency Rating indicating immediate work required. Many of these pipes were not in the $5.1M dollar Top Down evaluation.

2018 Transportation Survey Report

5.9 MB
Year:
2019
Theme:
Survey
Description:
Since 2000, the CCRPC has regularly assessed the public’s attitudes on transportation related issues. Previous public surveys were undertaken in 2000, 2006 and 2012.  The surveys are collected from a random sampling of CC residents in order to achieve results that can be reliably extrapolated, within a margin of error, to the entire County population. This latest survey, conducted in April/May 2018, largely replicated the previous versions to note any historical attitudinal shifts. The purpose is to objectively measure public opinion regarding performance of the region’s transportation system and identify strategies to address existing and future deficiencies.

Winooski River Bridge Scoping Study

63 MB
Year:
2019
Theme:
Bridges
Description:
CCRPC, in partnership with Cities of Winooski and Burlington, and the Vermont Agency of Transportation, completed this study for the US RTs 2/7 bridge over the Winooski River.  The purpose of the project is to improve safety for all users while maintaining structural integrity and continuity of this vital link between the two cities.  Several issues and needs motivated the parties to look at this bridge, including: 1) Addressing the condition of this aging bridge structure as it is in the latter stage of its service life, 2) providing designated safe lanes for bicyclists, 3) continuing the necessary two lanes of traffic in both directions, and 4) improving safety conditions for pedestrians.

I-89 Exit 12 Transportation Improvement District (TID)

3.3 MB
Year:
2019
Theme:
Impact Fees, Municipal Planning, Transportation
Description:
The CCRPC worked alongside the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) and the Town of Williston to evaluate the feasibility of creating a Transportation Improvement District (TID) at the Exit 12/Taft Corners area in Williston, VT. In 2014, the Vermont General Assembly passed Act 145 (H.740) which establishes a Transportation Impact Fee that may be required by an Agency of Natural Resources District Environmental Commission (DEC) or by VTrans to help pay for transportation improvements that directly benefit proposed or future developments. One mechanism by which Transportation Impact Fees can be assessed is through a TID. RSG was retained by CCRPC to analyze and evaluate the potential TID in this area and identify a pathway toward implementation.
