On July 20, transportation agencies completed the Final Environmental Impact Statement for Vermont’s Circ Highway. The planned project would be an expensive new boulevard roadway outside of Burlington, Vermont. The project is a poor public investment and a subsidy for sprawl.
Costing over $60 million dollars, saving only 4 minutes of travel time, limiting public transportation options, destroying irreplaceable farmland and wetlands while providing less congestion relief in Essex compared to improving existing roads is simply a bad idea.
Join CLF in calling for sensible transporation solutions, NOT more crowded roads and more pollution. Submit comments online by August 27, 2010 or attend a public hearing:

Before you go… CLF is working every day to create real, systemic change for New England’s environment. And we can’t solve these big problems without people like you. Will you be a part of this movement by considering a contribution today? If everyone reading our blog gave just $10, we’d have enough money to fund our legal teams for the next year.
