Winooski Avenue Corridor Improvements

In March 2020, City Council directed the Department of Public Works to implement key recommendations of the Winooski Avenue Corridor Study. Implementation will be phased across several years.   


Pearl Street to Maple Street

City Council directed DPW to pursue changes south of Pearl Street in 2020 to include:

  • New pavement markings from Pearl Street to Main Street (one southbound vehicle lane, one northbound vehicle lane, a center turning lane, and northbound and southbound bicycle lanes)
  • Continuous bike lanes in both directions south of Main Street
  • Consideration for physical protections for people walking and biking
  • Improvements for high-priority transit stops and pedestrian crossings

This project will consist of pavement markings, signs, quick-build infrastructure, but no reconstruction.

Planned Schedule + How to Reach Us

September 16, 2020: Public Works Commission approved parking removal on the east side of South Winooski Avenue between Main Street to King Street and approved one-way southbound travel except bicycles between King Street to Maple Street. 

October 2020: implementation begins. Work is weather dependent and schedules may shift. Work is anticipated to start early morning on Tuesday, October 6 and may continue intermittenly for the next 3 weeks. 


Next Steps

Public Works monitors completed projects for safety and effectiveness. Staff will be on-site observing the new configuration and welcomes community feedback on the changes. 

As requested by City Council, DPW will also convene a North Winooski Stakeholder Committee before beginning the Parking Management Plan for north of Pearl Street. More information on this phase of the project will be shared after October 2020.
