Course Goal

Road building is a necessary but often expensive aspect of resource development, both for forest harvesting operations and for the energy industry. In this course we discuss the materials, equipment and skills needed for a technique that can reduce the cost of road building. The goal is to have a reliable, cost-effective construction technique that gets the job done in an environmentally good way. Material presented here will describe the concepts, the best practices during stream crossing construction and a few examples of applications of Geotextile Reinforced Soil construction. The course will provide enough background for the participant to adapt the technique to new situations.
