Transportation Resilience in the Steven’s Branch
CVRPC, in cooperation with communities in the Steven’s Branch watershed, has been awarded a grant to add the watershed to the Vermont Transportation Resilience Planning Tool.
The Tool is a web-based application that identifies bridges, culverts, and road embankments that are vulnerable to damage from flood inundation, erosion, and deposition. It estimates risk based on the vulnerability and criticality of roadway segments and identifies potential mitigation measures based on the factors driving the vulnerability. The Tool combines river science, hydraulics, and transportation planning methods.
This Tool will assist communities to be proactive in how they approach infrastructure improvement projects and flood damage resilience.
