Route 116 Corridor Study - 2013

Route 116 through Hinesburg had seen substantial changes in the past 15 years (i.e., since the last corridor study), including land development focused in the village growth center, increases in through-traffic volumes due to development within and south of the village, and several intersection improvement projects to address safety issues.

Project Summary

This corridor study will be a comprehensive evaluation of Route 116 through Hinesburg’s growth center, and include all modes of transportation. It will examine the opportunities for accommodating planned village growth and addressing current traffic congestion through enhancements in street connectivity. The study will look at the pros and cons of the Town taking over Route 116, and go beyond the 116 corridor to include possible future Town roads shown on the Hinesburg Official Map (e.g., West Side Road, Stella Road and Cheese Plant access drive, etc.). It will also seek opportunities to maximize alternate modes of transportation, and provide more efficient alternate routes for local circulation.

This study is funded by the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC). Dubois & King was selected as the consulting firm for this project, and Lucy Gibson will be their principal consultant doing the lion’s share of the work. This study will be closely coordinated with CCRPC’s modeling staff, who will be developing a corridor traffic simulation model. A local steering committee will help inform the consultant’s work. Several public meetings are planned to garner wider community input. The project will culminate in a final report to the Selectboard.
