In January 2017, Concrete Canvas (branded Concrete Cloth in the US), was used to provide slope protection in Rossville, Tennessee.
A rail intermodal facility in the southeast had an existing steep slope which had been armoured with riprap. The existing riprap had deteriorated, making a section of the slope difficult to maintain with standard practices falling short of regulatory requirements.
As a result, the client began to look for alternative solutions which could not only protect the slope but provide stability to its surface and prevent saturation.
CC was chosen for the scheme, with works carried out by Hulcher Services Inc., with design support from Milliken Infrastructure.
