Better Roads Grants Announced
The Vermont Better Roads Grant Program recently announced grant awards for 2018. Municipalities in Bennington County will receive $168,640 for a variety of projects to be completed by December 31, 2018. BCRC will create updated culvert and road erosion inventories in Arlington, Dorset, and Shaftsbury. The work will help the towns comply with the 2018 Municipal Road General Permit, which is required by the Vermont Clean Water Act. Road crews in Peru, Pownal and Shaftsbury will be busy completing road erosion projects through the installation of upgraded culverts and stone lined ditches. A bridge or box culvert will be installed on Rice Lane in Bennington. The Better Road Grant Program receives grant applications each spring and BCRC is ready to assist our municipalities with the application process. Contact Jim Henderson for more information.
