Gonowabie Road is a historic logging road now serving vacationers and homeowners who enjoy the beauty and tranquility of Crystal Bay in Lake Tahoe. One lane road width, discerning esthetic requirements tight environment regulations and one – way traffic made this project particularly difficult. The project required the installation of a sculpted and stained soil nail wall. GSI® received high marks from both the owner (Washoe County, NV) and local residences for high quality work. The final sculpted and stained shotcrete façade masterfully matched the existing granite outcroppings in the area.
A variation of karst sinkhole grouting is the grouting of mined coal seams and workings located below existing infrastructure that exhibit the potential to propagate to the surface and cause sinkholes and/or subsidence.
