A township near a major metropolitan area in the Northeast United States experienced a total slope failure that included a large section of new highway extension. GeoStabilization International® was hired to provide a turnkey Design/Construct/Warranty approach to repair the slope and roadway. A wall was constructed utilizing Geosynthetically Confined Soil (GCS™) services on an array of micropiles installed through the slope failure plane; allowing the roadway, shoulder, and guiderail to reconstructed. The project was completed in less than one week and matched the cost estimate that GeoStabilization submitted prior to the project’s authorization.
In the Mid-Atlantic Region of the United States a rockslide occurred that presented a variety of problems for the state’s Department of Transportation (DOT).
