Champlain Parkway: Let's shape a roadway our City can love!
Fight Environmental and Racial Injustice—Burlington’s Champlain Parkway Racial Discrimination Against King Maple Neighborhood: largest minorities in City, one in five residents, 21%! 80%+ low/moderate income! 31% pedestrian/bus dependent—no car access! Black pedestrians die twice the rate of whites!
NO PARKWAY IN KING MAPLE NEIGHBORHOOD!
No Parkway! Proposed Pine/King and Pine/Maple traffic signals will bring
higher speeds to neighborhood traffic!
No Parkway! The Parkway will bring even more traffic to Pine, King and Maple
Streets—up to 37% more!
No Parkway! The Parkway’s new traffic lights at Pine on King and Maple
Streets will increase pedestrian injuries about 20%, and car crashes!
No Parkway! The Parkway design will force pedestrians to wait when crossing
Pine Street at King and Maple and increase noise.

New Street starting at Curtis Lumber/Kilburn Street along Parkway route over two miles to Queen City Park Road features this two-way separate bikeway and adjacent sidewalk
Pine Street Coalition’s “New Street” proposal preserves King Maple safety, cuts traffic numbers, a basis for a smaller scale compromise—a cheaper, climate responsive, highest safety Parkway for our South End avoiding another Burlington “holeintheground”!
