Welcome to the Burlington Bike Path Website!
The City is currently working on enhancing the Burlington Bike Path through a multi-phase rehabilitation project. For more information please refer to this website frequently and check out the Burlington Parks, Recreation & Waterfront Facebook page and twitter account.
Bike Path Rehabilitation Project
The Bike Path Rehabilitation Project proposes the rehabilitation of the approximate 8 mile multi-use path that runs through downtown Burlington and along the Lake Champlain waterfront. The project limits extend throughout the entire City of Burlington beginning with the southern terminus of the project at the path intersection with Queen City Park Road and extending northerly to the Winooski River Bridge. This project will be a phased effort with full preliminary design beginning for the entire length of the path in July of 2013. Phase 1 of the project will consist of Phase 1a, encompassing the length of the path from Perkins Pier to Penny Lane, and Phase 1b, encompassing the length of the path from Penny Lane to Texaco Beach.
Construction began on the Phase 1a design work in October 2014 and shutdown in December for the winter season. Phase 1a construction is scheduled to resume in April 2015 with a goal of completion by Memorial Day 2015. As it currently stands, the design of Phase 1b work is tentatively scheduled to be completed during spring 2015, with construction beginning thereafter. For additional details regarding the Rehabilitation Project please see the Project Overview Presentation ( 2.3MB).
The objective of this project is to rehabilitate the Burlington Bike Path to update it to current multi-use path standards to serve its ever increasing use, to increase resiliency, and to ensure it withstands the test of time to continue serving Burlington residents and visitors.
Final Technical Narrative of September 2015 Alden Waterfront Soil
and Groundwater Assessment NEW!
In advance of the Leddy Soil Stock Pile public meeting on Thursday, November 12 at 6-7:30 PM in the Leddy Arena Meeting Room, we have posted the final Technical Narrative of September 2015 Alden Waterfront Soil and Groundwater Assessment for public review
The Johnson Company (JCO) is pleased to provide the following Technical Narrative which summarizes our September 2015 assessment of soil and groundwater associated with the Alden Waterfront parcel in Burlington (the Site). In the interest of expediting the presentation of results, this Technical Narrative was prepared at the request of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to present the assessment data so that the future jurisdiction (EPA or DEC) of the stockpiled and in-situ soils may be determined. JCO understands that the City of Burlington intends to host an informative meeting with the public to present the data and its implications, discuss the possible disposal and/or reuse option(s), and receive input from the community. Following this meeting the City of Burlington intends to issue a memorandum that will summarize the conclusions of this recent assessment, present the management alternatives considered, and finally present the preferred management option and timeline to be implemented as it relates to the soils currently stockpiled. The City of Burlington remains ahead of schedule in terms of the timeline agreed upon by DEC and the City to have a final determination made regarding the management of these soils by the December 15, 2015 deadline.
