Infrastructure Project Notice + Neighborhood Meeting

As we enter Year 2 of the Sustainable Infrastructure Plan to reinvest in Burlington's infrastructure, one of our goals is to keep you informed.

We are writing to let you know that DPW is undertaking a series of significant, coordinated projects to upgrade and invest in aging municipal infrastructure along Maple St (between Battery and St. Paul) and Pine St (between Main and Maple) beginning in April and lasting through much of summer. We will be hosting a public meeting (please RSVP to DPW Public Information Manager at rgoulding@burlingtonvt.gov, or 802-540-0846) to discuss these projects and their impacts and address any questions you may have. This will be held on March 14 at 5:30pm at the Bobbin Mill Community Room at 245 Pine St. These projects will lead to renewed and revitalized infrastructure that will serve Burlington residents and visitors for a long time. We thank you for your patience during the construction season.

We have set up a website to help keep everyone informed: https://www.burlingtonvt.gov/DPW/Reinvestment/Lower-Downtown

Overview 
The projects consist of 3 water main upgrades (one on Pine between Main and Maple; and two on Maple between Battery and St. Paul), a new traffic signal and pedestrian signals (at Battery and Maple) and paving work on Maple (between Battery & St. Paul). We do expect construction zones to transition to local traffic only on and adjacent to the projects with some temporary parking loss, and are proposing some temporary parking additions to help mitigate these impacts. More information is below.

Public Meetings 
- We are hosting a neighborhood meeting to discuss these projects and the impacts and answer any questions on March 14 at 5:30pm at the Bobbin Mill Community Room at 245 Pine St. Please RSVP to DPW Public Information Manager at rgoulding@burlingtonvt.gov or 802-540-0846

- To help address some temporary parking loss during construction, we are also proposing to the DPW Commission at the March Public Works Commission meeting on March 21 at 6:30pm at the Public Works building to add temporary parking on South Champlain (between Maple and King) and Pine St (just south of Maple).

Information Resources 
We have created a webpage for these projects and you can find the address below. On it you will find a map, a tentative schedule and tentative traffic map, a fact sheet for most of the projects on and adjacent to that corridor, as well as the brochure we mailed to property owners and distributed to local businesses and residents. Other resources include:

- BTV Construction Portal (for a map and table of all projects): burlingtonvt.gov/construction 
- Sustainable Infrastructure Plan website: burlingtonvt.gov/DPW/Reinvestment 
- Maple/Pine specific page: burlingtonvt.gov/DPW/Reinvestment/Lower-Downtown 
- Report maintenance concerns: seeclickfix.com

Thank you, and we look forward to working with you during the upcoming construction season.
