Vermont 116 Culvert AOP Project

21.8 MB
Year:
2012
Theme:
Environment, Storm Water, Technical Assistance
Description:
Vermont Route 116 in Starksboro and Hinesburg is slated for re-paving by the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) in 2013. This pilot project, led by the Addison and Chittenden County Regional Planning Commissions, injects aquatic organism passage (AOP) assessment and design into the planned culvert replacements on Vermont 116. The primary objective of this project is to identify structures where subtle and inexpensive design changes such as small increases to pipe size or re-setting of the culvert can improve fish passage so that these changes can be readily incorporated into planned culvert replacements. The ultimate goal of this work is to incorporate fish passage improvements into regular paving operations around the state.
