Identify how we stabilized and revegetated a steep slope/embankment where soils washed into ballast/train tracks due to erosion and sheet flow.
Soil restoration is a critical factor in the success of revegetation projects. When soils become depleted and devoid of vital sustenance and microbiology, no amount of fertilizer will overcome the soil deficiencies. One of the main ways to ensure the success of your revegetation projects is by adequately restoring the soil before beginning the project. Soil restoration includes adding vital nutrients and organic matter lost due to neglect, construction, and overuse. Learn how you can ensure quick results and the long-term success of your revegetation projects with proper soil restoration on your job sites.

Our roadways and other civil structures are constantly under attack from moisture causing premature deterioration in both paved and unpaved applications. This leads to costly maintenance, or worse, complete reconstruction. Using Mirafi H2Ri in roadway designs can help to reduce the moisture content in moisture-sensitive soils throughout the life of the structure. In this blog post, you will learn why Mirafi® H2Ri is the ultimate integrated geosynthetic for subgrade stabilization in environments with moisture-sensitive soils, including expansive soils.
The project team eliminated the need to cement stabilize the subgrade and installed a geosynthetic reinforced pavement with Mirafi H2Ri, a high strength, moisture-management geotextile, without adding any additional thickness to the original section, which included 7” of flex base and 8” of asphalt.
Over time, as pavements age and are subject to heavy traffic loads and extreme weather conditions, pavement distress begins to accumulate. This distress can include potholes, rutting, and cracking, requiring the need for maintenance or rehabilitation to prevent premature pavement failure. However, the existing cracks are one of the biggest threats to the future performance of the pavement, in that they become reflective cracks, which quickly propagate upward through a new asphalt overlay, leading to a rapid loss of serviceability of the newly surfaced pavement. This blog post will explore how to waterproof and mitigate reflective cracking using asphalt pavement interlayers.
Expansive soils can lead to extensive cracking in pavements and costly maintenance. Download our reference guide, "How H2Ri Equalizes Moisture Beneath Pavements” and learn how Mirafi H2Ri redistributes and equalizes moisture to mitigate reflective cracking and extend the performance of your pavement.
Designing pavements with longer lifespans at a lower cost can be difficult for engineers looking to deliver the best possible performance for every dollar invested. Unfortunately, high traffic loading, environmental conditions, and inadequate drainage constantly challenge the functional lifespan of your pavements. Since 1965, the asphalt pavement interlayers have had an outstanding record of improving pavement performance while reducing maintenance and roadway life-cycle costs. This blog post will explore the various applications for asphalt interlayers and how to select the right interlayer for your pavement.
