Quaker Street Pavement marking

Traffic Calming Trial Project – Quaker and Creamery Streets

As part of recent drainage and pavement improvements on Quaker Street, new pavement markings have been installed to create nine new parking spaces to alleviate cramped and sometimes dangerous parking on town roadways in the center of town. Public events, from time to time, at Burnham Hall, Town Offices, Lincoln Historical Society Museum and the United Church of Lincoln all require additional parking. On-street paved parking spaces will be easier to maintain and use throughout the year.

At the same time, new pavement markings on the traveled, level portion of Quaker Street from the triangle north to the path to Lincoln Library provide a gentle reminder that motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians share responsibility for safe use of the roadway. The new markings are broken white lines on both sides of the road approximately 4 feet in from the edge of pavement. When bicycles or pedestrians are using the 4-foot lane, motorists are advised to slow and pass carefully, providing a minimum of 4 feet clearance as provided by Vermont Statute. Motorists are free to drive in the advisory lane when no pedestrians or bicycles are present.

In spring 2020 a final layer of asphalt will be applied on Quaker Street. We will appreciate your cooperation patience and participation in this trial project. Your comments and constructive suggestions are important to determine the future use of this marking approach on Quaker Street and other town roads.
