New I-89 exit proposed for South Burlington - Fox 44

South Burlington is considering a new I-89 exit off Tilley Drive, just west of the “whales” sculpture.

"In a previous public survey, South Burlington residents had indicated they want the open space near Kimball Avenue and Tilley Drive to be used for parks, single-family homes and office space. A separate question asked what transportation options would be most beneficial. Residents said they foremost wanted a connected network of sidewalks and bike paths. The I-89 interchange at Route 116 was their second choice. “Exit 12B seems to be a long-term investment that would pay off,” said City Councilor Tim Barritt. “I think a lot of people that live in the southeast quadrant spend a lot of gasoline trying to go south on I-89 and this would offer a solution for that."
