Champlain Parkway? Sierra Club Community Conversation

Despite all its efforts to identify as a liveable city, Burlington, Vermont has a poor safety record, with bike, pedestrian, and auto accidents far exceeding safe levels. Streets designed exclusively for cars hamper efforts to make downtown Burlington truly walkable and bikeable downtown that we envision as we transition to the future of transportation in a post-carbon world.

How can proposals for the Champlain Parkway, which seeks to transform neighborhood intersections and bikeways collaborate with Department of Transportation Secretary Butigieg's National Safety Strategy to address safety issues, and environmental justice challenges in diverse neighborhoods?

Transportation design visionary Tony Reddington joins us to take a closer look at real solutions that can transform how residents get around in this city. Conversation recorded March 16, 2022
