  • Abstract: "This booklet came to be written because of a bridge replacement project that was proposed for my town, Tunbridge. Many citizens and public officials felt that the project was unnecessarily large and out of scale for its village setting. After a year of sometimes difficult negotiations with the Vermont Agency of Transportation we were able to agree on some modifications to the design, improving the project to a degree. During the process we operated with little information on the law, the issues, and the process, and with little help. Some basic knowledge would have been very helpful to us. This booklet is intended to provide this information to citizens and public officials in other Vermont towns. From that experience, I developed a definite point of view about highway issues, which is reflected in this booklet. However, my point of view aside, I have attempted to provide accurate and credible documentation for assertions in this booklet. This is particularly true for statements about applicable laws. Much of the legal information comes from publications called "Selected Studies in Highway Law" and "Legal Research Digest", both of which are published by the Transportation Research Board, a research arm of the National Academy of Sciences. This purpose of these studies is "to furnish thoroughly researched reference material on highway and transportation law..." according to an introduction to the publications. The studies are prepared by attorneys specializing in highway law and are overseen by a board made up of attorneys, state attorneys general, state transportation officials, Federal Highway Administration officials, and others from the transportation industry; in other words not an environmental/preservation group. These studies can be found at the Vermont State Library in Montpelier, open to the public. Paul Gillies, of Tarrant and Marks, and former Deputy Secretary of State for Vermont, has provided invaluable help by reviewing this handbook for accurate legal content. Advice on highway engineering matters has been provided by Walter Kulash, P.E., Senior Transportation Engineer, Glatting, Jackson, Kercher, Anglin, Lopez, Rinehart, Orlando, FL. Mr. Kulash is a licensed professional enginer, and an experienced highway planning engineer interested in "livable" highways."
