During 2007 and 2008 the Snelling Center conducted a project focusing on the preservation of Vermont roads and bridges. The premise was that the condition of roads and bridges is critical to Vermont prosperity and to the viability of our communities in the 21st century. Failure to invest enough in preventive maintenance is leading to geometric increases in future costs. The project has included presentations, discussions, development of a Critical Data Guide, a business leader conference, and public surveys.
