BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - After decades of planning and delays, construction hit another roadblock for the Champlain Parkway Project after opponents secured an emergency injunction.

A federal judge has granted a temporary restraining order to the Pine Street Coalition, a group opposing the project, telling the city of Burlington it cannot start clearing trees between Home and Lakeside avenues until Friday, after their court appearance.

In a statement to WCAX News, a spokesman for the city said, “Today’s filing is the latest in many years of legal battles to attempt to stop this project. We are optimistic that the City will soon prevail in this latest challenge.”
