R&M provided geotechnical engineering for this slope stabilization project. Our team performed a geophysical investigation consisting of 14 seismic refraction lines. The geophysical program was augmented by test pit and fracture analysis, as well as geologic mapping of exposed rock. These analyses were the inputs for the selection and design of a slope stabilization system for the overburden soils above a high rock cut. The chosen system consisted of high strength wire mesh (TECCO mesh) pinned to the slope face with grouted anchors. This system satisfied the requirements of being constructible from the top-down, durable, relatively maintenance free and visually unobtrusive.
