Probably the only one of its kind.  Fairly certain the jughandles on 2 between 89 and the lake are not signed as such.  I know the jughandles on 15 near Camp Johnson aren't...

The Brookfield Floating Bridge on VT 65 closes for the season today, so I decided to write a blog article about the history of the floating bridge.

WPTZ is reporting that the Champlain Parkway will begin construction in July.  The Burlington City Council unanimously approved construction in their meeting yesterday.  As noted elsewhere in the forum, the project will utilize and extend the abandoned I-189 spur west of US 7 up to Lakeshore Ave as a 2-lane parkway.  The project also includes reconstruction of Lakeshore Ave and Pine St.  The first phase (the spur extension) is expected to be completed in 2024 with the entire project completed in 2027.

But also, if it's supposed to connect the South End to downtown, why isn't the 2nd phase going to extend it...? No one's written what's in each phase

It's on the project website.  First phase is extending the spur up to Lakeshore Ave.  Second phase is reconstructing Pine St between Lakeshore and downtown (Main St).  The spur itself will not extend beyond Lakeshore Ave.

So how will this reach downtown without demolishing buildings? There’s an athletics center and a city market in the way. I’m guessing that this will face opposition from the residents there once again?

It's not reaching downtown, not as a separate route anyway...there's a Superfund site with significant soil contamination between Lakeshore Ave and the rail yard (the former Pine Street Barge Canal).  Pine St will be used to get downtown, hence why Pine St reconstruction is part of the project.

Meanwhile, VTrans posted on Facebook that the VT 65 Floating Bridge in Brookfield is back open for the season.
