(SR500X) Temporary Road Surface Mats to Reduce Low Volume Road Damage and Protect Natural Resources

Seminar Start Date:

Seminar End Time:

This Webinar will provide participants with knowledge and lessons learned on selection, performance and installation of temporary road surface mats. This demonstration used road surfaced mat applications for protection of soft soils and pipe crossings to provide temporary access for timber and natural resource extraction. The Forest Service used this technique on seasonal roads for short sections that are on minimally engineered, native surfaces in the Apalachicola National Forest in Florida and the Allegheny National Forests in Pennsylvania. This demonstration pilot made use of the guidance developed by the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center to select road surface mat types.
