Jericho Corners Streetscape
The Town of Jericho serves as a popular gateway to the Green Mountains by Route 15. Increased traffic in the central core of the town threatened pedestrian and bicyclist safety, as well as the aesthetic quality, historic character and unique identity of the downtown. LandWorks worked closely with Resource Systems Group, Town and Village Staff, and local businesses and community members in Jericho to design a series of traffic calming and streetscape recommendations to improve pedestrian safety and enhance the Village character. These recommendations included new gateway signs, sidewalks, crosswalks, street trees, lighting, and improved parking. LandWorks also prepared construction documents for implementation and developed a lighting standard for the Town. An extensive public process was an integral part of the project and established strong community support for the initiatives presented.
