Project Summary

Hoyle, Tanner is providing design services for creation or improvement of four Park and Ride lots. These paved commuter Park and Ride facilities serve residents in central Vermont. The lots will be constructed with maximized parking space (including handicap space layouts), pole mounted area lighting, pavement striping, drainage systems, slope stabilization, a bus shelter and low maintenance landscaping. Designs include an internal commuter bus loop to facilitate pick-up and drop-off movements.

Projects involve site clearing and grading followed by installation of separation fabric, structural box and asphalt pavement. Power for the lot’s lighting system will be brought into the sites from poles on adjacent roads. Stormwater management items include underdrain, culverts, a treatment swale and detention ponds. Permitting requirements include both VT ANR and Act 250 permits.

The Royalton site is being subdivided from an existing retail business. Access to the site requires relocation of approximately 300 lf of Waterman Road and revisions to the left turn lane on Route 107. Relocation of Waterman Road will involve relocation of some overhead utilities. Both roadway modifications will require changes to existing drainage facilities.
