Colrain recognized by DER for successful completion of culvert replacement project on Adamsville Rd.

Hi Folks,

It has been a busy couple of months. It was great to see so many of you at recent training events as well as out in the field looking at your own culvert projects. I especially want to thank those of you who have been in touch with your ideas, needs and questions about the culvert replacement process. Hearing from you helps us figure out how we can help.

I am happy to report that two municipalities we have been working with completed culvert projects this spring. In am also writing to pass along some updates on upcoming opportunities for training, funding and for comment on a new federal grant program.

Happy summer everyone.

Northampton and Colrain Culvert Replacements Complete

This spring, the City of Northampton and Town of Colrain each completed culvert replacement projects.

?Northampton replaced a 21" round pipe on Park Hill Road with a 8.5' wide open bottom box culvert. The project in Colrain (pictured above) replaced a badly deteriorated 3' wide by 5' high box culvert with a 12' wide open bottom box culvert. Both projects were able to use outside funding sources, including funding through DER’s Municipal Assistance grants, to help build crossings that are designed to be more storm resilient, low maintenance and ecologically friendly for a long time to come. We look forward to seeing more projects like these reach the construction phase this year. Please let me know if you have any projects lined up for this construction season that you would like to tell us about.
