This is to inventory road-related erosion and culvert problems; identify and prioritize problem areas and develop a Capital Budget plan that describes how these problems will be addressed over time, generally five-year span.
We are already working in the trenches with local road crews to do culvert and road surface inventories; identifying areas of erosion or other problem spots and putting together capital budget plans. As a result, it is very easy for RRPC to help towns with both the grant application and project deliverables.
This is to correct road-related erosion problems, and/or stormwater mitigation retrofits for gravel and paved roads. Rock or grass-lined ditching is a frequent project, but funds can also be used for things like road drainage turnouts, rain gardens, and green stormwater infrastructure.
This is to correct stream bank or slope-related problems, including stream bank stabilization, slope stabilization, and retaining walls/stacked walls.
This is to upgrade culverts and structures, including replacing undersized culverts or structures (usually a box culvert); replacing culverts/structures, and culvert head cuts and gully stabilization in direct proximity to the roadway.
We can provide maps, cost estimates, letters of support, and technical assistance. Give Mary Lamson a call today for help or to get answers to questions. Please visit the Vermont Agency of Transportation’s website for complete information about the Better Roads program and for grant forms.
