A recently completed pilot project in the Deerfield River Watershed developed and tested approaches for assessing ecological disruption, risk of failure (structural, hydraulic and geomorphic), and potential for disruption of emergency medical services (EMS) due to failure, for road-stream crossings. Data from these analyses are available via a web-based tool, the Stream Crossings Explorer (SCE). A version of the SCE is being developed for all of Massachusetts and 12 other northeastern states. As assessment protocols developed in the Deerfield are implemented in other areas, we will be better able to work with emergency managers and highway officials to address both ecological and transportation vulnerabilities associated with road-stream crossings.
