VISION: The newly designed North Avenue is an “all modes” transportation corridor that runs the entire length of Burlington's North End. As the North End’s “main street,” North Avenue meets the transportation needs for all within and outside the neighborhood through the freedom of choice to move through and within the corridor safely by foot, bicycle, public transit or private vehicle, thereby providing multi-modal access to homes, businesses, schools and other destinations.

North Ave Corridor Design is a Model for the City.
North Avenue will be re-engineered to prioritize safety of all modes -- cars, trucks, buses, bikes, and pedestrians. There will be safer ped crossings, protected bike lanes, and through lanes for motorized traffic with a center turning lane. Eventually roundabouts will replace four signalized intersections. As residents learn the value of safe streets design, they are taking a fresh look at old projects like the Southern Connector aka Champlain Parkway.
