I-90 Slide Repair with Launcher

In the winter of 2011, GeoStabilization International® was contracted by a Western state’s Department of Transportation (DOT) to mitigate active landslides at 3 separate locations along a major highway in the northern part of the state as these slides posed an imminent threat to the Interstate’s roadway. These emergency sites were remedied using GeoStabilization’s Soil Nail Launcher to rapidly install the ballistic soil nails and accept load. GeoStabilization then used various facing systems such as shotcrete and high-strength mesh to stabilize the slides until the DOT was able to construct earthen buttresses later along the affected areas.
