Before & After: Improvement Project Transforms Allegheny County Road
What it's like traveling a low volume road project
Thanks to a $40,000 grant from ACCD’s Dirt, Gravel and Low Volume Roads program, this road in Allegheny County is already seeing benefits from a drainage improvement project. Though the work is far from finished, the abrupt difference in driving conditions highlights the benefits of this project both for the stormwater management and motor traffic.

About our Grant ProgramOur Dirt, Gravel and Low Volume Road Program provides education, technical assistance and funding for projects that minimize the impact of paved or unpaved low-volume roads on natural landscapes and streams. Every year, we fund projects that promote cost-effective, environmentally sound maintenance practices to correct erosion, runoff and pollution problems.
To date, we’ve awarded over $1.8 million in grants to eligible municipalities in Allegheny County to implement Environmentally Sensitive Maintenance Practices on local roads.
