Stop Sprawl
Vermont Highway Opposition

In Vermont, Sierra Club has declared the following position on highway construction in general:

The Vermont Sierra Club is opposed to all new highway, belt-line, by-pass, ring road and circumferential highway construction because they only increase traffic, sprawl, and environmental impact while undermining investment in better alternatives. The Club is calling for continued focus on the State's current long range transportation plan. The plan supports reinvestment in existing roads, bridges and rights of way and increased investment in public transportation.

Specifically, the roads we oppose are the Circumferential Highway and the Bennington Bypass. We have nominated the Circ Highway for a Road to Ruin Award.
