Resources Available for Towns

As recovery efforts continue throughout the state Local Roads has posted a number of resources on our website. They are available to download on our homepage at http://www.vermontlocalroads.org/.  Please pass this information onto anyone else who may need it.

  • A list of consultants municipalities can use for bridge inspection. VTrans is overburdened and unable to perform local inspections for towns at this time.
  • A recovery form to fill out
  • A document covering disaster response and recovery for roads crews
  • Guidelines for downed utilities in roadways
  • The VLCT is posting resources offered by towns to assist other towns, and resources needed by towns http://www.vlct.org/league-resources/irene-recovery-resources/
  • The status of state roads from VTrans are posted on the agency’s website (note if a road is listed as open, it may be just for emergency vehicles)
  • Please be aware many towns are updating their municipal websites on the status of local roads in their community
  • We will update this list as more resources and information become available.

 Please let us know if we can help in any other way.
