PROJECT UPDATE: Last week one of our crews completed the Terraseeded EcoBlanket installation. The new portion of the highway is now open!
Original post - June 29, 2016, when we did the first phase of the project:
We have just completed the first part of EcoBlanket installation at the Stone Creek highways project in Prince George. Working with Windley Contracting on this Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure project, we applied Terraseeded™ EcoBlanket® to steep slopes to control erosion.
This project will upgrade 3 km of Highway 97 from Stone Creek to Williams Road from the current two lanes to four lanes. The additional two lanes will be constructed below the original highway, along the bank of the Fraser River.
EcoBlanket is an approved product on the Ministry of Transport Recognized Products List (see page 60).
We will be completing this in spring 2017, so stay tuned for photos of these slopes vegetated.
