Another attempt to delay Burlington's road to nowhere.

Three appeals could put the brakes on the project again. Friends of Pine Street, Fortieth Burlington and Rieley Properties all filed appeals against the city of Burlington. They are trying to block the restart of construction on the Champlain Parkway, previously known as the Southern Connector.

The project has been in the works for more than 40 years. It's designed to take traffic from Interstate 189 to Main Street.

The next court date is scheduled for August. Those three appeals could be rolled into one.
