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.

I-89 Exit 14 Bike / Pedestrian Crossing Study

The City of South Burlington is divided by I-89 at the Exit 14 Interchange. US Route 2 is a principal arterial roadway that spans I-89 and is a major transportation connection between many major employment centers and residential areas in Burlington and South Burlington. This interchange area, including US Route 2, was primarily designed with motor vehicles in mind. 


As part of the project stakeholder group, Local Motion is providing input to the City of South Burlington and Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) to identify possible crossing improvements for pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users in the I-89 Exit 14 area, and evaluate the feasibility of those improvements.  The goal of the study is to recommend an alternative transportation crossing option that has the support of the community so that funding may be pursued for engineering, permitting, and ultimately construction.  

For more information, visit the CCRPC's project website.

Local Motion is working as part of the Project Team to make South Burlington streets safer for walking and biking by filling key gaps in the city's bicycle and pedestrian network on Dorset St, Airport Parkway, Spear St and Allen Rd with multi-use paths and on-road bicycle facilities as appropriate.
