Middlebury demos pop-up bike-pedestrian projects; seeks community feedback

MIDDLEBURY — In addition to the temporary bridges in downtown Middlebury, Middlebury residents are also being exposed to a few pilot bicycle-pedestrian projects in the downtown.
The Middlebury Bike-Ped Technical Assistance working group, in partnership with the bike-ped advocacy group Local Motion, set up a two-week pop-up project designed to test traffic calming strategies. The goal is to determine what strategies work to make downtown areas more bike-pedestrian friendly.
The pop-ups, which are not permanent, seek “to collect input and observe what works and what doesn’t should the town consider more permanent strategies for street improvements in the future,” according to a notice from the working groups.
The three current test locations are: Merchants Row/Main Street intersection; on Seymour Street from Greg’s Market to the Congregational Church; and on Maple Street to the entrance of the Marble Works.
Community feedback can be sent to selectwoman Laura Asermily, [email protected], or Town Planner Jennifer Murray, [email protected]. Residents may also provide feedback via a survey at surveymonkey.com/r/MiddleburyPopups.
