VT Route 15 Traffic Signal Assessment Study

13.3 MB
Year:
2017
Theme:
Corridor, Infrastructure, Intersection, ITS
Description:
This study focused on evaluation of traffic signal systems for eleven intersections along the Vermont Route 15 corridor in Winooski, Colchester, and Essex for compliance with current signal design standards and for their ability to support new traffic control technologies. Recommended traffic signal infrastructure improvements were identified and prioritized. Cost estimates for these improvements were also provided.

US Route 7 Milton Corridor Study

37 MB
Year:
2017
Theme:
Corridor, Transportation
Description:
This study focused on evaluating the transportation needs and developing multimodal improvement strategies to accommodate the anticipated growth along the US 7 corridor (Forbes Road to Main Street) in Milton. This corridor has experienced considerable commercial growth in recent years and is expected to see continued development into the future. The Study developed recommendations concerning highway configuration, traffic control, access management, public transit, and pedestrian and bicycle accommodations. Transportation conditions and needs were evaluated from a “Complete Streets” perspective and the study recommends actions to better accommodate all users of the corridor. The final plan identifies improvements that could be implemented in the near-term for relatively low cost, as well as potentially longer-term improvements involving larger-scale physical changes to portions of the corridor.

Winooski Avenue Corridor Study Phase 1

4.6 MB
Year:
2017
Theme:
Corridor
Description:
This project is a two-phase study of this north south corridor in Burlington.  The study area extends from the intersection of Riverside Avenue & North Winooski Avenue south to the intersection of Shelburne Road & Willard Street. It encompasses Winooski Avenue, Union Street, and Willard Street, as well as some cross streets. In phase 1 a traffic microsimulation model was developed to investigate traffic implications associated with five alternative traffic patterns, with the goal of providing an improved north-south corridor for all travel modes.

Williston Road Network Transportation Study: Phase I – Initial Technical Evaluation

3 MB
Year:
2015
Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Corridor, Traffic, Transportation
Description:
The Williston Road Network Transportation Study evaluates the section of Williston Road between Dorset Street and Hinesburg Road. The Phase I effort includes a summary of existing and future conditions along the corridor as well as an initial screening of potential alternatives. Phase I includes the development of a subarea traffic model which, along with the Chittenden County Regional TransCAD transportation model, evaluates different future transportation strategies including increased use of transit, biking walking and carpooling.

North Avenue Corridor Study

10.9 MB
Year:
2015
Theme:
Corridor
Description:
This study evaluated transportation conditions along North Avenue between North Street and Plattsburgh Avenue in Burlington from a “Complete Streets” perspective, and developed multimodal transportation improvements that, when implemented, will provide for safe, inviting, and convenient travel for all users of all ages and abilities—including motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, and public transportation riders. The final corridor plan identifies improvements that could be implemented in the near-term for relatively low cost, as well as potentially longer-term improvements involving larger-scale physical changes to the North Avenue corridor.

Vermont 15 Corridor Study: Essex to Winooski

30.4 MB
Year:
2015
Theme:
Corridor, Route 15, Transportation, Vermont 15
Description:
The goal of the VT 15 Corridor Study is to develop a comprehensive multi-modal transportation improvement plan (Plan) for the VT 15 corridor from Main Street (“Circulator”) in Winooski through the towns of Colchester and Essex and the Village of Essex Junction, to the border of Essex and Jericho. The Susie Wilson Corridor from VT 15 to VT 2A was also addressed. The Plan presents a long-term vision and goals for the corridor and recommends a number of short, medium and long-term transportation and land use strategies to achieve the vision over time. Transportation strategies developed for the study area address highway, pedestrian, bicycle and public transit modes. Land use, access management and corridor aesthetic strategies were also developed that support the long term vision of the VT 15 corridor. This Plan builds on the numerous planning efforts, development programs and projects that have been initiated over the last several years along the VT 15 Corridor by state, regional and local entities. This final report includes all interim reports prepared throughout this study to: assess the current and future land use and transportation conditions in the study area; develop a vision and goals for the study corridors; and articulate strategies to achieve the vision through a detailed implementation plan.
