Essex Tanglewood Drive Stormwater/Bicycle/Pedestrian Improvements Study

9.1 MB
Year:
2021
Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Infrastructure, Stormwater
Description:
Tanglewood Drive, between Cindy Lane and Woodlawn Drive, is a relatively low-volume car-oriented street in the Town of Essex with no accommodations for bicycles and pedestrians. There is also recurring problems with the outlet to the closed drainage system that has resulted in significant erosion near the outlet adjacent to Fern Hollow Road. This study developed alternatives to address the stormwater issues and offer improvements for walking and biking. A preferred alternative was approved by the Essex Selectboard in September 2021.

Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Infrastructure, Safety, Sidewalk, Transit, Transportation
Description:
Final report available here: https://www.oldspokeshome.com/one-mobility-audit The Old North End (ONE) is Burlington’s most economically, ethnically, and socially diverse community. The historically working-class neighborhood is a vibrant collective of arts, food, small business, and community-centered services, and is home to much of Burlington’s lower-income and migrant populations. This neighborhood mobility audit by the Old Spokes Home (bike shop and non-profit) sought to identify transportation investments that will improve pedestrian, bicycle, and transit access for traditionally underserved residents within the ONE to area jobs and essential services. A survey of those residents helped the project team to understand residents’ specific experiences, needs and barriers. Recommendations are made to enhance walking, biking, and transit connections to area jobs and essential services (e.g., shopping, educational centers, medical care facilities, etc.) at a neighborhood level, as well as suggestions on how to involve and engage traditionally underserved populations in planning projects.

Runoff from nearby properties drains over Lake Street at the driveway intersections. Most of the stormwater sheet flows into small swales or ponds in the nearest low spot. The City with funding from the CCRPC studied possible pedestrian, streetscape and stormwater improvements for Lake Street in the project area.
