Benmont Avenue Active Transportation Corridor Study

The BCRC is conducting a study to transform Benmont Avenue into an “Active Transportation Corridor.” Benmont is a critical north/south transportation corridor and the only direct walking and cycling route between downtown Bennington and the commercial and residential area along Northside/Kocher Drive. Despite its importance, Benmont has no sidewalks between the Holden-Leonard Mill Complex and Hunt Street. There are no bicycle lanes, pavement markings or other facilities to make cycling safe or appealing. This study will recommend improvements to make Benmont a safe and inviting place to walk or ride a bike.
