Streets reimagined for the 21st century

Design that prioritizes pedestrian safety and movement while maintaining vital on-street parking

The city of Burlington has a history of creating public places with an impact. When the city decided to update car-oriented streets in the area to enhance the bustling pedestrian experience, Bank and Cherry Streets were selected.

Working block by block, we tailored to community and infrastructure needs—our design maintains safe and intuitive vehicle travel flow and creates links that prioritize pedestrian zones, bicycle access and transit service. The plan prioritizes pedestrian safety and movement while maintaining on-street parking needed for the success of small businesses. Adding bicycle parking and access to the transit center on Cherry Street caters to the city’s need for multi-modal connections, and the design incorporates landscaped parklets and seating areas outside of businesses, restaurants, and gathering areas, allowing the community easy access to these amenities. To top it off, rain gardens and green infrastructure for stormwater management are placed throughout the landscape to help direct pedestrian flow and provide guidance to designated street crossings. 

Bank and Cherry Streets are being reimagined for the 21st century, adding infrastructure resiliency and inviting pedestrian to underutilized cross streets.
