VTrans plans railyard project in Burlington, Vermont

The city of Burlington, Vt., and the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) is planning a new railyard project that will link Pine and Battery streets through a new urban street grid, creating a multi-modal network of rail, truck, car, transit, bike and pedestrian connections to access Burlington's southern waterfront and railyard.

"We're excited to partner with [Burlington, Vt.] Mayor [Miro] Weinberger and the city of Burlington," said VTrans Secretary Brian Searles. "This new project will be good for economic development, improve truck access to the railyard and provide options to residents and visitors to access Burlinton's waterfront."
