Making Vt. streets more accessible for pedestrians, bicyclists

BURLINGTON, Vt. -

How can Vermont communities make their streets more accessible for pedestrians and bicyclists?

That was the topic of a training session Wednesday in Burlington on Vermont's "Complete Streets" law. Town planners and engineers gathered to discuss ideas for meeting the goals of better accommodating all modes of transportation.

"I hope they go away realizing that they can do more with the existing infrastructure than they thought they could. That they can be more creative, to spark some ideas to give them examples of what other people have done as a base and then watch them leap from there," said Gil Newbury of Kingsland Bay Technical Training.

The workshop was sponsored by AARP which has particular concerns about safety and accessibility for seniors.
