North Winooski Avenue & Archibald Street Intersection: Pedestrian Safety & Mobility Evaluation

17.5 MB
Year:
2011
Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Infrastructure, Intersection, Traffic, Transportation
Description:
For several years, the City of Burlington has desired to improve the pedestrian safety and mobility at this intersection. Historically, this intersection has had pedestrian improvements with the construction of Little Park which comprises the southwest corner of the intersection. The construction of the park not only provided an aesthetic element to this corner, it also removed the adjacent intersection of Bright Street and North Winooski Avenue. To further this pedestrian mobility and safety improvement effort, the City of Burlington had initiated some pedestrian signal improvements in the field; however, further design plans were not developed and the improvements were not constructed at that time. The City now desires to move this pedestrian improvement project forward by having an evaluation of pedestrian crossings, roadway alignment, and the signal system so that up-to-date cost information and options can be determined.

I-89 Exit 12B Interstate Access Analysis Report

30.2 MB
Year:
2010
Theme:
Infrastructure, Interstate, Traffic, Transportation
Description:
The purpose of this report is to address the requirements of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Interstate Access Policy as it relates to a proposed interchange between I-89 and VT State Route 116 in South Burlington, VT (Exit 12B). It will be used to seek preliminary approval of a new access to the interstate from FHWA and provides information that will support the continued planning and analysis of the proposed project. The FHWA Interstate Access Policy was established to ensure that new access points achieve their intended purpose without significantly reducing the ability of the interstate to safely and efficiently accommodate through traffic. To satisfy the FHWA Access Policy, an Interstate Access Justification Report (IJR) must be prepared that provides the analyses necessary to address eight requirements that define the approach to the study and are generally related to traffic operations and safety, transportation planning and land use planning.
