South Burlington

South Burlington has an abundance of opportunities to walk or bike on designated pedestrian paths and on-road facilities. Many of these paths connect to the city’s sports and retail complexes. Two prominent bicycle shops call South Burlington home, Earl’s Cyclery and Alpine Bike Shop. Earl’s hosts one of the state’s largest annual bike swaps.

REC_PATH_2_Lee_Krohn.jpgLocal Motion is supportive of local efforts to make South Burlington an even better place to walk and bike. We have helped students at Chamberlin School learn how to pedal with style and confidence through our Bike Smart trainings and encouraged adults to make two wheel transportation a part of their routine through our Everyday Bicycling workshops.

We’ve also provided technical advising for efforts to make Williston Road, Airport Parkway, Spear St, and Dorset Street, as well as the new city center being developed around Garden Street, safer for all users. To become more involved in making South Burlington a safe and welcoming environment for walking and biking consider participating in the South Burlington Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee.

Williston Road Bike Lanes

Local Motion worked with the Agency of Transportation (VTrans) and was instrumental in extending bicycle facilities along Williston Rd to include the entire state highway portion of Williston Rd to VT 2A as part of the repaving planned for summer 2016. Specific improvements include a combination of bike lanes, buffered bike lanes, 11-ft vehicle travel lanes and conflict zone markings using green paint.
