Richmond Road Bike/Pedestrian Feasibility Study

A safe route for pedestrians and cyclists along Richmond Road between CVU Road and North Road is a priority in the Hinesburg Town Plan. This Feasibility Study looks at that section of the Richmond Road.

Hinesburg’s highest population density lives here. There are 286 homes on properties directly served by this corridor, including two mobile home parks with 121 homes. The western terminus connects to the village sidewalk system and CVU High School.

Installing bicycle and pedestrian improvements in this area is complicated by a narrow road with difficult constraints (e.g., ledge, grade, geometry).

With the help of the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission, the Town of Hinesburg has hired the Toole Design Group (TDG, transportation consultants) to assess options for bike and pedestrian improvements and associated costs.
 
Final Report Available

After two public meetings (11/05/15 and 4/20/16) and review of a draft report by the Select Board on June 23, 2016, TDG finalized the project report. The final report details the existing conditions, outlines possible alternatives, and provides feasibility information and rough cost estimates.

What happens next? Good planning sets the stage and gets us started. Actual implementation of bike/ped improvements depend on priorities set by the Select Board. This is one of several potential bike/ped projects awaiting implementation. A project of this magnitude will require a concerted effort by the Town and substantial financial resources – both Town funding and State or Federal grant funding. Ultimately, it will be up to the Select Board to decide whether to pursue the project, and if so when.
