The primary purpose of the work was to mitigate an active slide area by restoring the slide mass located at milepost 210.5 on U.S. Highway 95, to a more structurally capable slope. Work involved major earthwork (excavation of over 220 thousand cubic yards of material), material wasting activities and the placement of base rock and a plantmix overlay. Work also involved the placement of new culverts, guardrail and rock fall protection fence. This project was particularly challenging to our operators since the cut extended 600+ feet above the existing road.
