Project Description

The Buck’s Lake Road Slope Stabilization project helps prevent hazardous rock fall along a 500-foot section of Buck’s Lake Road. The selected alternative includes shifting the alignment slightly to provide an enhanced rock fall ditch, adding a Reinforced Soil Slope on the fill side of the road, construction of an MSE wall on the fill side of the road, and adding rock fall netting on the cut slope.
