Dirt, gravel and low volume roads (DGLVR) are an essential part of our transportation system and a major source of pollution. Water runs along roads, picks up pollution and delivers it to nearby streams or lakes.
The DGLVR grant program provides education, technical assistance and funding to improve roads and subsequently the landscapes they travel through. Every year, projects are funded that promote cost-effective, environmentally-sound maintenance practices to correct pollution and improve safety.
To date, ACCD has awarded over $1.8 million in grants to eligible municipalities in Allegheny County to implement Environmentally Sensitive Maintenance Practices on local roads.
This program has funded 36 projects and has stabilized nearly 34,000 feet of roadway since 2015.
