2014 Bike-Ped Grant Application

VTrans has released the applications for this year’s bicycle and pedestrian grant program. The Bike/Ped Program provides funding for either a scoping study or a design/construction project for the following facilities:

  • Bicycle lanes (on-road facility delineated with pavement markings and signs)
  • Shoulders (generally a minimum of 3-feet wide to accommodate bicyclists)
  • Sidewalks
  • Pedestrian crossing improvements, including median pedestrian refuge islands
  • Pedestrian signals
  • Improvements that address requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Shared-use paths (designed for use by both bicyclists and pedestrians)
  • Pedestrian-scale lighting (not likely to rank highly as a standalone project, but eligible as a project component).
Additional information and the grant application are available through the VTrans Local Transportation Facilities Program: http://vtransengineering.vermont.gov/sections/ltf/bike_ped. Information sessions will be held on May 15 and 20 and the applications are due on June 27. Contact Mark Anders at the BCRC if you have any questions about the program.
