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.

    For two years, I lived in Richmond, and I never biked to the commuter bus, because I was afraid of that road.

    The huge improvements in Williston/So Burlington on Route 2 from Taft’s Corner into Burlington show what’s possible. Less stressful for everyone! A great way to use our tax dollars.

    Re striping would be a small step in the right direction! I do not feel safe biking on this stretch, and while I think much more needs to be done (re paving, protected lane), this is a good start.

    Would like to be able to bike to Williston more. Would love to be safer on this busy section. While we’re here a bike lane, like they put at Tafts Corner to be able to move through the intersection where the North bound on ramp veers away from Rt. 2 would be awesome. Scary right now. Thanks.

    Or one larger shoulder on 1 side of the road. I’d like to walk to the Park and Ride.
