Planning commission seeks feedback on Winooski Avenue overhaul

Local News

BURLINGTON, Vt. – The Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission is seeking feedback on three potential overhauls of Winooski Avenue.

The process to renovate the road has been ongoing since 2016, when the commission began their traffic study, which examined the section from Riverside Avenue to the intersection with Howard Street.

The first plan would open up more parking north of Pearl Street, as well as allow for two-way traffic. The second plan would create a curbed median that would allow left turns on College Street, Bank Street and Cherry Street. The third option would widen the road in an effort to maximize parking space on both sides.

There’s a public open house on the project scheduled for June 4 at St. Joseph’s School in the Old North End. The commission hopes to have a final report ready by September.
