Longmeadow-Webster Road Bicycle/Pedestrian Path Feasibility Study

40 MB
Year:
2004
Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Infrastructure, Transportation
Description:
The Town of Shelburne Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan (1993) recommends development of a pedestrian and bicycle connection from the neighborhoods north of Webster Road to the Shelburne Community School on Harbor Road connecting through the Village center. This recommended connection is consistent with the Chittenden County Bicycle and Pedestrian Regional Path (2003). Detailed planning for the connection was initiated in the mid-late 1990s. However, the facility and alignment contemplated at that time did not fully conform with federal or state funding standards. This feasibility study is meant to update the alignment and verify that both procedural and alignment Standards for shared use paths can be met.
