Construction continues but last week a major milestone was reached in the Greenway improvement project.
Approximately 2 miles of work between Shore Road and the Winooski River bridge have been completed and reopened. The paving is fresh, with brand new landscaping and easy accessibility for all users.
Guest should be aware that construction is still underway on the Phase 2b section from North Beach to Shore Road. Please follow the signs posted and avoid the construction area.Work in the stone culvert to the south of Little Eagle Bay will begin immediately. The contractor will be removing approximately 140 cubic yards of silt that’s clogging it up.
As construction continues, North Avenue will be utilized as a detour for path users, as shown in the picture below. Drivers on North Avenue should be aware of increased bicycle traffic during this construction period. Burlington Parks and Recreation has also created a summer series on safe biking to help riders understand how to navigate BTV safely.
Burlington Greenway Phase 2 rehabilitation will improve the quality of the north section with a wider, freshly paved surface. This process will create a better experience for users of the greenway, whether they be on bike, skateboard or foot. The final product will also include new plantings and improved look out areas along the lake for users.
Crews will soon work to improve Greenway intersections within the construction area, as well as, significant storm water infrastructure and repair of drainage courses and culverts.
Burlington Parks and Recreation will post updates on their website. Park Burlington will continue to provide information related to parking and transportation impacts resulting from this project.
