Bicycle & Pedestrian, Intersection, Safety
The Colchester Avenue: Bikeways, Parking, and Intersection Safety Study was conducted in coordination with the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission, City of Burlington, and an Advisory Committee consisting of community stakeholders. Public meetings and targeted outreach were also conducted to gather input from residents, property owners, and business owners along the corridor.
The goal of this study was to identify transformational, long-term improvements along the Colchester Avenue corridor and at the intersection of Colchester Avenue and East Avenue that re-envisions the multimodal gateway corridor following years of incremental change outlined in previous planning and design efforts. The study focused on consistent, multimodal improvements for the one-mile long corridor from the connection with Pearl Street at the intersection of North and South Prospect Streets, east to the Greenmount Cemetery, then north to Barrett Street and the Winooski River crossing. In addition, the study pursued safety improvements for the intersection of Colchester Avenue and East Avenue.
