A massive rockfall event occurred along Interstate 75 in TN. Large boulders fell onto the roadway, temporarily closing it. With motorists facing up to 30-minute delays, the local Department of Transportation acted quickly. GeoStabilization’s rapid response and flexibility played a critical role in reopening the interstate. GeoStabilization’s Rockfall Mitigation team worked hand-in-hand with the client and their contractor to create a workable plan to quickly restore roadway passage. As soon as the design was completed, Geostabilization mobilized several of their highly trained Rockfall Remediation Technicians to begin the repair work.
GeoStabilization International® utilized a Design/Construct/Warranty approach to construct a 28 ft. tall wall with Geosynthetically Confined Soil (GCS™) services that was supported on micropiles with final paving and guardrail improvements.
