[ARCHIVED] Culvert Replacement Grant Bolsters Egremont's Climate Readiness and Public Safety

Blunt Road Culvert July 2022

The Town of Egremont received a grant of $48,811 for design and engineering, permitting activities, and bidding and construction phase services to replace the Blunt Road culvert. 

The funding is part of the Culvert Replacement Municipal Assistance Grant Program, wherein Massachusetts communities are encouraged to replace degraded, undersized culverts with better-designed structures to meet the Massachusetts Stream Crossing Standards. Meeting the Standards increases climate readiness by restoring natural river processes, which improves public safety by reducing roadway and flood hazards and improves access for fish and wildlife.
