PROJECT DESCRIPTION.

Tagish Engineering was asked to assess the condition of a deteriorated main connector road between Hwy 2A and the C & E Trail, southwest of Red Deer. This was originally a soil cement structured road which was failing due to traffic loading and the elevation proximity to several adjacent low areas and water bodies. Each year, maintenance and patching efforts became more and more expensive and repetitious, and the road was perilously close to becoming impassable.

 

ENGINEERING HIGHLIGHTS.

•   Developing a cost effective solution based on the need for a structurally viable solution to a geotechnical based problem, while realizing the importance of staying within a limited budget

•   Design of a geometric grid base reinforcement combined with an engineered granular fill to adequately bridge the unstable sub soils

 

CONSTRUCTION HIGHLIGHTS.

•   Quality Assurance Construction Inspection

•   Substantial site monitoring to continuously assess changing soil conditions

•   Landowner liaison
