Western Vermont Corridor Transportation Management Plan ~ Final Report

21.3 MB
Year:
2010
Theme:
Corridor, Freight, Rail, Western Corridor
Description:
The purpose of the Western Corridor study is to evaluate transportation, land use and related conditions and create a Transportation Management Plan that presents a unified, long-term vision for managing and improving the transportation system in western Vermont. As an initial effort to coordinate planning over a vast study area, the plan does not recommend specific projects. Rather, it presents a broader vision and framework for transportation investment policies and strategies. Continuing the ongoing collaboration among the study partners will be key to developing and implementing specific projects and programs consistent with the recommendations of this plan. The plan is being coordinated with the Vermont Agency of Transportation’s ongoing project development efforts in the Corridor, including various railroad initiatives.

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.
