Route 15 Bicycle and Pedestrian Facility Feasibility Study: Colchester to Essex Junction

62.6 MB
Year:
2007
Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Corridor, Transportation
Description:
In 1996, the Chittenden County Metropolitan Planning Organization began work on a scoping study for an alternate Transportation Path in the Route 15 corridor between Essex Junction and Colchester. To assist in the work, the CCMPO hired Lamoureux & Dickinson Consulting Engineers (L&D) of Essex, Vermont. L&D held several public work sessions, circulated an informal survey to bicyclists and residents, met with the municipal boards, conducted field survey and did extensive work to prepare the Scoping Study. After L&D prepared a draft report, numerous outside factors lead to the CCMPO halting work on the project. This Study is an update of the previous work prepared by L&D as part of the original Study.
