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.

Jericho Center Circle Stormwater Improvements, Final Design

15.1 MB
Year:
2021
Theme:
Environment, Stormwater, Technical Assistance
Description:
In accordance with the agreement between the Town of Jericho, the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC), and Hoyle, Tanner & Associates, Inc. (Hoyle, Tanner), this Final Design Report has been prepared to synthesize previous deliverables and to provide 100% Design Plans for development of two stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) within the Town Green located in Jericho Center. Preparation of this report was funded through a Design Implementation Block grant from the Vermont DEC Clean Water Initiative Program administered by the Mount Ascutney Regional Commission and through funds from the Town of Jericho. The following general purpose and need statements has been developed based on our initial meeting with Town and CCRPC Staff in 2019. Purpose The purpose for this project is to provide stormwater treatment for the Bolger Hill Road area and aid in the reduction of erosion that is currently occurring along Bolger Hill Road and to reduce the sediment accumulation at its intersection with Jericho Center Circle. Need The need for the project is to reduce the gravel, which comes from Bolger Hill Road, that gets washed into the Town Green and abutters properties after large storm events. The Town would like to improve the water quality in this area through the construction of Best Management Practices (BMPs) within this project. Goals The Goal of the project is to develop 100% Design Plans and Engineer’s Estimate of Probable Construction Costs for delivery to the Town and CCRPC. A Drainage study was completed by Hoyle, Tanner in January 2020 and was titled Drainage Alternatives Study, Bolger Hill Road Drainage Improvement Project, Jericho, Vermont (see link in Appendix A).

Jericho: Bolger Hill Road Supplemental Study, May 2021

2.8 MB
Year:
2021
Theme:
Storm Water, Technical Assistance
Description:
The scope of the Bolger Hill Drainage Scoping project was to provide engineering services for the advancement to conceptual design (25%) of the Alternative #4 Design presented in the January 2020 Bolger Hill Road Drainage Alternatives Study. This project builds on that previous study that investigated drainage issues and evaluated improvement options for Bolger Hill Road in Jericho. A survey was conducted, and conceptual plans were drafted to more accurately develop a cost estimate for improvements to Bolger Hill Road. Further design aspects of the Bolger Hill Drainage Scoping project conceptual design are noted below. The Jericho Center Circle SW BMP Design project is not discussed further in this Design Narrative. The purpose of the project is to provide a roadway and drainage alternative that reduces the erosion that is currently occurring along Bolger Hill Road and to reduce the sediment accumulation at its intersection with Jericho Center Circle. The need for the project is to reduce the gravel, which comes from Bolger Hill Road, that gets washed into the Town Green and abutters properties after large storm events. The Town would also like to improve the water quality in this area.

Lake Street Pedestrian Streetscape and Stormwater Feasibility Study

10 MB
Year:
2020
Theme:
Bike/Ped, Bike/Pedestrian, Stormwater
Description:
Lake Street in Burlington is a shared use street that connects the City core to the northern waterfront. There are two mid-block pedestrian crossings on this segment. The road is landscaped with street trees and granite blocks. Stormwater runoff sheet flows across the road from east to west. 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.

Town of Milton Stormwater Master Plan

1.2 MB
Year:
2019
Theme:
Storm Water, Stormwater
Description:
In 2018 the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) received grant funding from the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources (VTANR) Clean Water Initiative Program to supplement funds from the Town of Milton to develop a Stormwater Master Plan (SWMP) for Milton. Fitzgerald Environmental Associates, LLC (FEA) was hired by the Town and CCRPC in the summer of 2018 to develop the plan. This final SWMP report for the Town of Milton represents significant efforts and collaborations over the last year between the Town, FEA, CCRPC, VTANR, and other partners, including private landowners and business owners, interested in mitigating stormwater and improving water quality. The goal of this project was to identify and prioritize stormwater improvement projects throughout the Town, with a focus on Town owned properties. Project prioritization followed the Unified Scoring Metrics recently developed by VTDEC (2018a). Conceptual design plans (30% design) were prepared for 15 high-priority projects. Additional phosphorus loading and removal estimates were completed to assist the Town with planning for future efforts to prepare the Phosporus Control Plan.
