Agency of Transportation Seeks Public Input on Lamoille Valley Rail Trail Management Plan

Barre, Vt. – The Vermont Agency of Transportation (AOT) will host a public meeting to seek input for a management plan for the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail (LVRT) at 6:00 p.m. on June 21 at the Swanton Village Complex at 120 First Street and virtually via Zoom<https://vhb.zoom.us/j/83786651561?pwd=U0JPTDdlVlcybC9rNmUxWjdURFdyQT09>.

“We are excited to be nearing completion of this management plan, which will set the stage for the State to work toward a consistent approach and visitor experience for all state-owned rail trails,” says Michele Boomhower, Director of Policy, Planning, and Intermodal Development at AOT.

The LVRT management plan seeks to develop a cohesive vision for the trail; identifies long-range strategies for management, maintenance, and operations of the trail; and supports opportunities for community and economic development efforts along the LVRT. Construction of the LVRT is scheduled to be completed in 2022. The 93-mile trail will connect 18 communities across five counties in northern Vermont from Swanton to St. Johnsbury. The plan will provide a model rail trail management planning framework for all State-owned rail trails in Vermont, including the Missisquoi Valley, Beebe Spur, and Delaware & Hudson rail trails.
