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.
