TRORC works on a number of projects that have a regional impact or involved multiple towns.
This project was completed in 2009 by Steadman Hill Consulting and the UVM Transportation Center for the Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission. The main goal of this study was to try to understand how the demographic characteristics and land use patterns of the Two Rivers-Ottauquechee region affect travel demand. Much of this study considered the history of the region, since the transportation system and land use of the present day was bequeathed to us by past generations. This document, though, also considered how current conditions, both inside and outside of the region, affect travel today and in the future. The final report is available for download below.

The US Route 4 Corridor Management Plan was developed through a joint effort of the Town of Hartford, the Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission (TRORC), the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans), the project Steering Committee, local residents and business owners. This Corridor Management Plan was developed through a systematic review of existing transportation conditions, previously identified deficiencies, land use patterns, zoning and land use regulations, combined with input from local, regional, and state stakeholders. Future land use scenarios were developed for 2030 and 2050 using detailed parcel specific projections which were thoroughly reviewed by all stakeholder parties. An examination of the 2030 and 2050 future scenarios led to the identification of future land use policy, transportation deficiencies and recommendations.
