New Hampshire Stream Crossing Initiative

Project description (English)

Project partners are working to address flood risks and make our infrastructure more resilient through a proactive approach by identifying and replacing problem culverts before they can fail and cause damage. Identifying crossings for replacement that will maximize ecological benefits while addressing infrastructure safety can save money and help to restore aquatic habitat in the long run. The goal is to assess and prioritize which crossings are the best candidates for replacement to improve public safety, infrastructure resilience and aquatic habitat restoration.
