TRANSPORTATION PLANNER:  ERICA ROPER 

The WRC has a strong commitment to transportation planning that accurately reflects the priorities of all the communities it serves.  Our transportation program is based on the Vermont Agency of Transportation’s (VTrans) Transportation Planning Initiative (TPI) Manual and Guidebook, a collaboration between VTrans and the eleven Vermont Regional Planning Commissions.

Our Transportation Work Program is directed by the Transportation Committee that includes representatives and key stakeholders from towns and organizations in the region. Part of their work includes an annual prioritization of regional transportation projects which helps VTrans to prioritize their work across the region.  Staff also conduct traffic studies to collect vehicle volume, speed and classification (link to Traffic Count request form). More information about the Committee meetings, agendas and work can be found here.

Regional Transportation Plan Update

The Regional Transportation Plan Update was recently completed through the work of WRC staff, with input from the WRC Transportation Committee and our towns.  The plan was approved at the Transportation Committee meeting held on June 10th, 2013.  This update set the model for the currently onging Regional Plan Update, and will be up for town approval as an addendum to the Regional Plan during the public review process.  A digital copy of the Transportation Plan can be found by following this link to our Publications page, or by clicking on the "Publications" tab above.  The plan is divided into chapters and found under the heading "Regional Transportation Plan" on that page.

Updated Route 100 Scenic Byway Corridor Management Plan

Scenic Route 100 Byway is located in south-central Vermont. Running along the east edge of the Green Mountains, this 138 mile byway has a wide range of historic, cultural, scenic, natural and recreational resources. Recognized by Yankee Magazine as one of “the most scenic drives in New England” and part of Vermont’s “Skiers Highway” which connects some of the best skiing and riding opportunities in the northeast. From the Town of Stamford, on the VT/MA boarder to the Town of Granville, this byway now includes 20 towns. This is now Vermont’s second largest Byway, behind the Connecticut River Byway, crisscrossing along the spine of the Green Mountain from the Mad River Byway to the Massachusetts’s border. This has been a wonderful grassroots effort resulting from the joint partnerships of town representatives, various Chambers of Commerce, Regional Planning Commissions, and supportive businesses along Route 100..

The Town of Readsboro supports the Route 100 Scenic Byway and is requesting to be a part of it. Below is a link to the updated Route 100 Scenic Byway Corridor Management Plan. There will be an upcoming Public Hearing with the Scenery Preservation Council to review letters of support, take public comment and support with the purpose of making a recommendation to the Transportation Board to include the Town of Readsboro into the Route 100 Scenic Byway. Feel free to call Matt, x120, with any questions.

WRC Compiles Report on Route 9, Route 100 Intersection Public Meeting

In November 2012, a public meeting was held in Wilmington to discuss the impacts of traffic at the Route 9, Route 100 intersection.  Following that public meeting, the WRC compiled a report on the input collected through both comments made during the meeting, and comment sheets collected after the meeting.  This report is meant to assist the town of Wilmington and VTrans in their future decision making process with regards to traffic improvements.  The report is now available in a PDF version below.  Please contact Matt Mann at This email address is being protected from spambots.
