Hannafords Gives South End a Taste of Hurtful Parkway Design Staring July 1


News Flash: “Old 'Kmart Plaza' traffic cut-through to close, Free Press June 29, page 6A. A taste of current Parkway design current South End connection via Pine Street and Queen City Park Road to S. Burlington's Kmart Plaza closes Monday July 1—Hannaford new store build closes the connection for an indefinite period. No more Pine St. connection to Kmart Plaza south to Hannafords, Lowes and Palace! Everyone ready for tripping back and forth via Shelburne Road traffic to get to those popular S. Burlngton destinations? (No news on whether those on foot and bike will find a pathway through the construction.) Parkway design now fully walls all modes from Pine Street to Queen City Park Road, Kmart Plaza etc. Note Hannfords was contacted by our Coalition and they expressed absolutely no concern about lack of access from the South End to their new store with a built Parkway. The Coalition Re-design Guidelines call for a safe Pine St./Parkway/Queen City Park roundabout.
