Burlington, VT’s Quick Build Program is underway! The City of Burlington’s Department of Public Works built the City’s first protected bike lane on Union Street on October 12-13.
This project was first identified in the PlanBTV Walk Bike Master Plan – Burlington’s first citywide planning effort focused on active transportation. Street Plans led the creation of this master plan and, with the support of Dubois & King, was then hired by the City of Burlington Department of Public Works to develop and implement a citywide Quick Build program. The program provides an interim design approach to delivering a range of priority street design projects outlined in the PlanBTV Walk Bike Master Plan, which was recently approved by the City Council in April of 2017.
The protected bike lane on Union Street is the first of many Quick Build projects identified in the Master Plan.

We’re excited to announce that a final draft of PlanBTV Walk/Bike has hit the streets! This document is Burlington’s first comprehensive plan for walking and biking and it has an ambitious goal: to make Burlington the best small city for walking and biking on the East Coast. Street Plans was thrilled for the opportunity to work on this project for the City of Burlington Public Works with our partners at DuBois & King, Inc.. The plan identifies priority projects for rapid implementation, so Burlington can get started improving safety right away with low-cost quick build materials!
