Improving Stream Crossings: Flood Resilient, Fish Friendly
Co-sponsored with the Massachusetts Rivers Alliance, Baystate Roads, and Massachusetts River Continuity Partners, the workshop provided highway departments, municipal staff, consulting engineers, state agency personnel and others with tools to design and build improved road stream crossings to protect both public safety and the environment. The workshops included information about stream ecology, stream crossings standards and permitting, engineering standards and guidance, case studies, and technical and funding resources. Copies of the workshop presentations and handouts can be found here.
