Roadway construction often requires temporary or permanent erosion ditch and/or slope armoring. The importance of erosion control in roadway construction is to keep the bare soils of ditches and slopes in place until vegetation is established. Higher velocity roadside ditches can be effectively treated with permanent turf reinforcement technology in lieu of rock liner techniques.


Sediment Control

Roadway construction often requires sediment control solutions to prevent water pollution in nearby water ways and to retain eroded soil on the job site. The appropriate sediment control practices will assist in minimal damage to off-site receiving channels while reducing soil loss...

Site Armoring

During roadwork construction, slopes and ditches require armoring for long-term site protection. Nilex solutions eliminate the need for traditional rock riprap which can result in environmental benefits and a reduction in project costs...

Vegetation Establishment

Roadway construction often requires rapid vegetation establishment. Vegetation establishment is considered on a site by site basis depending on the desired end use as defined by the owner’s environmental permit...

Erosion Control

Erosion commonly takes place on roadway construction sites where wind and rain disturb civil grade soil and imported topsoil. Roadway erosion control solutions are designed as a barrier on the soil surface with the purpose of preventing terrestrial and aquatic sediment pollution...

I want to thank you for getting things organized as quickly as you did for us and for the follow up calls and site visits that allowed us to get this work done and meet our schedule dates for the road work. As well, your product knowledge and ability to provide the technical support when dealing with the consultants was a major help in getting the system approved and installed correctly.

Not only was there a substantial cost savings realized by the client, there was also a benefit to the road structure as well. The original design road structure number was 3.780 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 2,147,000. The revised road structure number using the TX5 is 4.260 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 4,593,000.
