Vt. lays out highway plan around Chittenden County

WILLISTON, Vt. (AP) -- Vermont officials say improvements to highway interchanges, more traffic lights and a short road around a portion of Essex Junction's five-corners intersection will be among the first projects to be constructed as part of a long-term plan to relieve traffic congestion in Chittenden County.

Gov. Peter Shumlin was joined Tuesday by Transportation Secretary Brian Searles and others when they introduced 34 separate projects that would address mobility, congestion, safety, quality of life and economic development.

Vermont officials have been struggling for decades to find a way to alleviate traffic congestion in the towns east of Burlington. A single section of what was to have been a ring road around Burlington was built, but subsequent sections were not.

The projects suggested Tuesday have an estimated total cost of $99 million.
