Infrastructure & Project Review

SAFE PLACES

Infrastructure & Project Review

  • ISSUE: While Addison County possesses some of the most desirable locations and landscapes for biking in Vermont, many Addison County roads, sidewalks and trails are severely lacking with regard to infrastructure, safety and access for those walking and biking.
  • GOALTo improve on-the-ground conditions for walking and biking.  The Council is working to identify and prioritize those roads, pathways, intersections or gaps that present the greatest risk or impediment to the walking and biking public; develop strategies for advancing targeted improvements in those locations; and at the same time, ensure that all transportation projects county-wide take advantage of every opportunity to improve physical conditions for walking and biking.
