Project Highlight: Tensar’s InterAx Geogrid Used for Soil Stabilization - This project site required a geogrid that would help stabilize the subgrade and that could support extreme weight. This site receives 60-80 trucks per day carrying steel coils that weigh 45,000 pounds per load, plus the truck weight. Because of this, they needed to stabilize the ground to support the high flow of traffic with heavy loads to prevent rutting and sinking. The original design required 2700 lbs/sf for the pavement section with 30” of aggregate. However, the design was switched to...Keep Reading

There are exceptions, for example, some communities allow a rain barrel or two to collect rainwater for irrigation. However, everyone must research their deed and know their legal rights and restrictions. So, what about green infrastructure and low-impact development? Does this mean that no one in Colorado is allowed to manage the water that falls and runs across their property? Absolutely not. In fact...Keep Reading
