Endorse improvements on Rte 2 in Richmond

We, the undersigned, users of Route 2 (West Main Street) in Richmond call on the Town, County and State authorities to implement improvements to make that heavily used section of road safer for all users. The present state of the road creates serious hazards for pedestrians and bicycle users and discourages or prevents them from using it. Immediately (prior to the eventual Route 2 rebuild) we request that the shoulder be re-striped, increasing the shoulder width by 1 foot on each side and reducing lane width from 12 to 11 ft., bringing the widths to the VTRANS standard for state highway lanes - we're simply asking them to comply with their own standard. This low cost, sensible improvement will work better for everyone. In particular, people want improved access to the currently jam-packed Park & Ride to facilitate carpooling and use of the Link Bus, as well as for access to residences and businesses.

    Thanks for work on this. A bike corridor is much needed here.
