Project Overview

The Champlain Parkway project is a proposed transportation link located in the southwestern quadrant of the City of Burlington, Chittenden County, Vermont providing access between I-189, U.S Route 7 (Shelburne Street) and the City Center District (CCD). The Champlain Parkway is currently being developed by the City of Burlington in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration and the Vermont Agency of Transportation. The Champlain Parkway will improve traffic circulation, alleviate capacity overburdens, improve safety on local streets, and provide traffic relief in the southwestern quadrant of the City of Burlington.

In January, 2010, in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Federal Highway Administration identified the Selected Alternative for the Champlain Parkway with the issuance of the Record of Decision.

The City of Burlington filed a Land Use Permit Application for the Champlain Parkway project at the Act 250 Regional District Office on April 15, 2011. The District Environmental Commission issued a Land Use Permit amendment to the City of Burlington and the Vermont Agency of Transportation on August 25, 2014. The City of Burlington is currently advancing the project design.
