Resilient Tidal Crossings

Project description (English)

In 2018, the NHDES Coastal Program and its partners assessed all known tidal crossings in New Hampshire's 17 coastal communities in accordance with the New Hampshire Tidal Crossing Assessment Protocol. Tidal crossing assessment data were used to rank and prioritize sites based on structure condition, flood risk, and ecosystem health. The Resilient Tidal Crossings NH Project was designed to better enable community officials and road managers to enact the strategic repair/replacement of tidal crossing infrastructure and to identify high priority restoration and conservation opportunities at tidal crossing sites.
