VTrans On-Road Bicycle Plan

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) is developing an On-Road Bicycle Plan in an effort to identify needed on-road bicycle improvements on the state highways. The VTrans On-Road Bicycle Plan is a planning effort using public input and roadway characteristics to categorize state highway corridors into several tiers. The tier system will rank the state highway corridors for on-road bicycling based on where bicyclists ride now and where bicyclists want to ride. The Plan will assist VTrans in understanding where to focus limited resources toward bicycle improvements and allow better integration into Agency projects.

A WikiMapping Tool is being used to collect public input on the primary routes bicycled across the state and obstacles for bicyclists to access preferred destinations. The information being collected is focused on the State highway system and segments of town highways functioning as an extension of State highways. You can provide input on the routes you ride, or would like to ride, using this tool.

In addition, public meetings will be held at Vermont Interactive Television sites around the state on the following dates:
January 7, 2015: Statewide Public Meeting #1 (rescheduled from December) / 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
