The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) Bicycle and Pedestrian Program is growing and needs help to further develop walking and bicycling as key components of Vermont’s transportation system.

Work will be varied and challenging and will include:

  •      Developing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure design guidance
  •      Research
  •      Safety and education outreach
  •      Policy development
  •      Planning

The position is in the Municipal Assistance Bureau of VTrans’ Highway Division. Approximately 20% of the job duties will be in direct support of the VTrans Bike/Ped program and 80% of the duties will be in the role of Project Supervisor, working with municipalities who have been granted federal and/or state funds to complete primarily bicycle and pedestrian projects.
