INTRODUCTION

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.

SOLUTIONS

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...

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...

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 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...

EAST 112 AVENUE TURF REINFORCEMENT MATS

The widening of Northglenn Colorado’s busy 112 Avenue corridor resulted in a narrowing of its adjoining drainage channel. The narrowing required permanent stabilization for banks with a new 2:1 side slope. The channel redesign included two intersections and drop structures along its 4,000…
