Although dedicated volunteers assist amphibians in crossing Vermont's Monkton-Vergennes Road on spring nights every year, these species may soon be provided a more permanent way to migrate from upland habitat to wetland breeding pools without getting smashed by vehicles. Two amphibian crossing structures are estimated to cost $273,000, and in 2010, FHWA awarded Lewis Creek Association a $150,000 Transportation Enhancement grant for culvert construction. LCA is working to provide the required 30% matching funds.
