Interesting concept, I wish they had shown a photo of the new concrete arch structure, I'm having trouble visualizing what it would look like.

Two years ago in central Vermont, the rains from Hurricane Irene caused major destruction to roads along mountain streams, much like what recently happened in Colorado.
One major cause of these road washouts was inadequate culverts that became clogged with debris
Driving through that part of Vermont this past summer you were constantly slowed by roadwork as all these old culverts were being replaced by the new concrete arch design

Stream Simulation can prevent culvert washouts - and makes fish happy!

RIP: Thanks, now I see what they were talking about. Kind of a small scale version of what they installed west of Pinedale for deer and antelope crossing over the hwy.

Here's the culvert from the article while under construction
Pretty interesting
I need to fix a culvert on my land. I like the looks of this
