Big step toward extending highway into Vt. city

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- Burlington officials say a long-planned highway project that would make it easier to get into and out of Vermont's largest city is a big step closer to moving forward.

City officials say they have crafted a settlement with a persistent critic of the proposed Champlain Parkway, which would link downtown Burlington with Interstate 189.

The Burlington Free Press ( ) is reporting that the deal that was finalized Monday calls for the city to sponsor a proposal to remove Maple Street as a designated truck route, improve sidewalks and crosswalks and use flashing beacons in the corridor and standard red-brick crosswalk designs at four intersections.

The Parkway would connect a section of highway that has sat idle for decades as the project hit environmental issues, funding problems and opposition from neighbors.
