Swanton Village Traffic Island and Infiltration Area Design & Implementation
Stone worked with the Friends of Northern Lake Champlain and the Village of Swanton on a stormwater retrofit project at the intersection of Academy Street and Grand Avenue (Vermont Route 7), next to the village green. The Village had planned to replace an existing, painted traffic island with a curbed island in order to better manage traffic flow. The Village's Public Works Director expressed an interest in incorporating stormwater management into the practice. The Friends of Northern Lake Champlain was able to secure grant funding from Vermont's Ecosystem Restoration Program to support the design and implementation, and hired Stone to develop the design.
