Bay Road Corridor Pedestrian & Cyclist Mobility Study
The Town of Shelburne has received a grant to work with the
Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) on a feasibility study to address bicycling and walking facilities on Bay Road in Shelburne. The study area encompasses the 1.7 mile stretch of Bay Road from Harbor Road to Shelburne Road (US Route 7). Increasing the use of alternatives to single person automobiles for personal travel, including bicycle and walking, is a priority objective in the Shelburne Comprehensive Plan. Walking and bicycling have taken place along town highways since the nineteenth century. This study is a pre-requisite for budgeting and grants to implement an ideal pedestrian/bicycle solution.
August 10, 2016: A project steering/advisory committee met with members of the CCRPC and the Toole Design Group to kick-off the study of the Bay Road Corridor.
October 25, 2016: Toole Design Group is currently working on an existing conditions summary memo (including archeological findings) and a Local Concerns presentation is scheduled for the October 25 Selectboard Meeting.
March 28, 2017: A presentation of alternative designs is tentatively scheduled for March 28.
April 25, 2017: A report on the preferred alternative design is tentatively scheduled for April 25.
