BRAINTREE, Vt. (AP) - Vermont engineers and scientists say more than 300 river banks, bridges and other sites damaged by Tropical Storm Irene still need repairs - some to fix repairs done the wrong way after the storm.
Officials from the state agencies of Transportation and Natural Resources gathered Tuesday afternoon near a bridge along Route 12A in Braintree to talk about a second post-Irene fix needed there.
Rock was used to build up a steep river bank after the storm, but now officials say the rocks are small and likely to be swept away by the next flood on the White River's Third Branch. They say the bank also needs to be pulled back to restore the river's natural flow.
Most of the remaining work will be paid for with federal funds.
