Dirt, Gravel, and Low Volume Roads

Every year, the Indiana County Conservation District works with public road owners through the Dirt, Gravel, & Low Volume Roads (DGLVR) Maintenance Program. Across the Commonwealth, the DGLVR program provides $28M annually for rural road improvements in Pennsylvania. Of that $28M, Indiana County receives approximately $700k each year! Our goal is to not only improve local infrastructure, but to also reduce roadway impacts on our natural resources.
