RSG Works with The City of Burlington And The CCRPC to Improve Intersection Safety with Solution-oriented Pilot Project

Working with RSG, the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission, and various stakeholders, Burlington’s Department of Public Works announced the start of a “solution-oriented pilot-program” at the Pearl Street/Prospect Street/Colchester Avenue intersection as part of the Pearl Street/Prospect Street/Colchester Avenue Scoping Study. This notoriously busy and problematic intersection, designated a high-crash location by VTrans, will undergo a number of changes during the pilot project including a new traffic pattern, signals, and signage. The piloted changes are part of a short term alternative being considered and will allow the project’s Steering Committee to evaluate and compare it to other longer term/higher-cost options that cannot be field tested.
