Construction to begin Monday at Richmond park and ride


August 22, 2013

Reconstruction on the Richmond park and ride is set to begin Aug. 26, and space will be limited until the project’s completion nearly a year from now.

Tatro Construction Inc. will add 53 parking spaces and resurface the pavement, for a total of 158 spaces. The company is also set to add drainage, lighting, signs, new medians and curbing, a traffic circle and a bus shelter. It will also construct a new entrance and traffic signal at park and ride entrance, U.S. Route 2 and the Interstate 89 southbound exit ramp. It will also replace the light at U.S. Route 2 and Vt. Route 117.

The project is expected to be completed June 26, 2014.

Gov. Peter Shumlin announced the approximately $1 million expansion project in May. The expansion is part of a larger project to encourage public transportation use and carpooling, adding a total of 500 spaces to Vermont park and ride lots.

  1. Louis M. Izzo says:

    I take frequent walks in my neighborhood and surrounding sidewalks/roads on Industrial Avenue and Rt 2-A and occasionally see what appears to be a dog-poop bag, nicely tied, but simply left there in the road or on the sidewalk. I would like to remind dog-walkers that this is not appropriate. Please carry it off.

    Thank you for meeting your legal responsibilities.
