Act 138, passed as an outcome of the 2011 Irene flooding devastation, mandated a training program to improve inter-program communications, build resilient infrastructure and reduce the impacts to Vermont’s rivers during flood recovery. The state Rivers Program, Department of Fish and Wildlife and VTrans developed a three-tiered River and Roads training program on how to better improve flood resiliency when rebuilding devastated roads, culverts and bridges.
The program is presented in Tier One, Tier Two and Tier Three levels to reach a wide range of state, municipal and private sector transportation staff, consultants, construction contractors, consulting engineers, selectboards, conservation districts, etc. working with roads and flood recovery work.
This eight-minute video captures the training and includes participants’ comments.
The Tier 2 River and Roads Training is free and attendees can receive continuing education credits.
