Williston Park-And-Ride Lot Off Interstate 89 Gets Permit

WILLISTON, Vt. (AP) — Construction is likely to start in the spring on a commuter park-and-ride lot at Exit 12 on Interstate 89 in Williston, after more than a decade of discussion and planning.

A state permit was awarded this week to start construction, the Burlington Free Press reported.

The 142-space lot is expected to be completed by the summer of 2023, according to the Vermont Agency of Transportation.

Williston approved the agency's plans for the commuter lot in 2014, in part due to overcrowding at the lot in Richmond, the newspaper reported.

The design for the $4.2 million project includes bus shelter, bike racks and ample lighting.
