North Avenue Project Modifications


Below is a comprehensive list of changes that will be made as part of the North Avenue Pilot Project:

  • The 4-lane segments of North Avenue will be reconfigured to 3 lanes
  • The intersections at Shore Road, Ethan Allen Shopping Center, Ethan Allen Parkway, and the VT 127 will be made more pedestrian-friendly
  • The signal at the intersection with VT 127 will be adjusted to increase safety by closing the high-speed northbound ramp and the free-flow westbound right-turn movement
  • Bike lanes will be added and existing bike lanes will be improved
  • Drain grates will be repaired or replaced with bike-friendly grates
  •  Parking on North Avenue between Institute Road and VT127 ramps and between Shore Road and Plattsburg Avenue will be swapped with bike lanes
