VTRANS Small Scale Bicycle and Pedestrian Program Grant

The Village of Essex Junction is proud to announce that we are a recipient of a 2018 VTRANS Small Scale Bicycle and Pedestrian Program grant. The purpose of this grant is to address simple, but critical, improvements that will increase access and/or safety of people choosing to bike or walk.  The Village will be using these funds to purchase rectangular rapid flash beacons (crosswalks that light up when a button is pressed) to help pedestrians cross in heavily traveled areas.  The total grant value is $8,600, and will be matched by $8,600 in Village funds.
