Burlington, Vermont approves two new bike lanes, but not without protest

Two new bike lane projects in Burlington have the green light, despite opposition from residents about the removal of over 75 parking spots.

The Department of Public Works Commission unanimously voted to ban parking on parts of Colchester and Flynn avenues for new bike lanes on Wednesday, with one commissioner not present.

On Colchester Avenue, about 39 parking spots will be eliminated between East Avenue and Barrett Street to make way for a north side bike lane.
