Add your name to help create a safer Colchester Ave

We, the undersigned, support the repurposing of the existing public right of way along Colchester Ave to make room for new and improved biking facilities. We call on the City of Burlington and Burlington Public Works Commission to support the repurposing of public space currently used for on-street parking to improve safety for those biking along this corridor.  We believe this is an appropriate and beneficial use of public space.

    I am a bike rider and live at the base of Colchester Avenue. I ride up and down the avenue frequently and lanes on both sides of the street are necessary. During the busiest times if day the lack of dedicated lanes is noticeable and bikers are often crowded by traffic. There are a significant number of bike riders who use Colchester Avenue and to insure safety for all traffic on the street the lanes should be included in any improvements to the avenue.

    Colchester Ave is a major street for commuters in and out of Burlington. If we are committed to being a healthy city and a green city we need to create safe bike routes throughout Burlington.

    I’m a car driver and a bike rider and I want to see safe movement for both within our city. We must move in the direction of making alternative modes of transportation safe for all.
