Milton U.S. 7 Corridor
- Milton, Vermont
- Burlington District Office, Vermont Department of Health; Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission; Milton Community Youth Coalition; Town of Milton; Milton Family Community Center; Milton School District
The Burlington District Office of the Vermont Department of Health, in collaboration with the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission, the Town of Milton, and other stakeholders, conducted an HIA of the reconfiguration of a 3-mile corridor of U.S. Route 7 in Milton. Eight strategies are proposed for the corridor; the HIA focused on the four that the community identified as the most controversial. The HIA explored potential health impacts associated with physical activity, access to services, and injury and safety.
The HIA found that all four strategies offer a combination of improved pedestrian facilities and connectivity as well as traffic calming. Overall, the HIA recommended reconfiguring the intersections at Bartlett, Legion, and West Milton roads.
