In New York, priorities for public safety and conservation converge at road-stream crossings
Historic flooding caused by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee in 2011 demonstrated the need to update bridges and culverts in New York for public safety and aquatic passage. Now partners across the state are using resources from the North Atlantic LCC-supported North Atlantic Aquatic Connectivity Collaborative to find opportunities to work together on updating road-stream crossings for the benefit of people, fish, and wildlife.
