Ongoing Projects

Prim Road / West Lakeshore Intersection Project

In 2013, a scoping study of the Prim Road and West Lakeshore Drive intersection was sponsored by the Town of Colchester and the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) as part of the Circ Alternatives process.  The Town elected to design and construct the alternative which realigns and signalizes the intersection so as to better serve the existing primary traffic flow patters between West Lakeshore Drive and Prim Road.  This alternative will reduce existing delays by changing the two high volume turn movements (Prim Road right-turns and West Lakeshore Drive left-turns) to through movements.  Access to adjacent commercial properties is also improved with this alternative.  Signalization, which would include new pedestrian signals and crosswalks, will also improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists traveling through the intersection.  Additionally, the Town has constructed a multi-use path along West Lakeshore Drive which will end at this intersection.  The Prim Road and West Lakeshore Drive intersection project is 100% federally funded.  For more information, please contact the Town Engineer at
