Municipal Assistance Bureau - Local Projects

Municipal Assistance Bureau (MAB) technical staff is assigned to work with, and support, the municipalities in the development of projects while providing oversight and guidance to ensure projects are developed in accordance with applicable design standards and federal and state regulations. Projects can reach into every area of transportation such as: development of scenic byway management corridor plans and other improvements to byways, stormwater improvement projects, development of bicycle and pedestrian facilities along with educational outreach, Safe Routes to School education and infrastructure improvements, municipal park and ride facilities, bridge improvements, roadway and intersection improvements, and a variety of transportation enhancements.

The Vermont Better Back Roads program is a unique addition to the MAB, and offers municipalities the opportunity to work with experienced and qualified staff to improve and enhance local roads through grant opportunities.
