23-1 Small Culvert Performance

Project Dates: October 1, 2023 - September 30, 2025

Project Description: 

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) has adopted a policy requiring all culverts to be inspected every 5 years, resulting in around 9,600 small culverts needing to be inspected annually. Many of these culverts have small diameters that preclude human inspection. Culvert failures can be expensive. With improved methods of monitoring and assessing the conditions of culverts, proper maintenance or replacement projects can be planned and implemented before catastrophic failure of a culvert occurs.
