Rockfall Mitigation

Rock Supremacy completed this rockfall project located in Lake Oswego, Oregon.  This very unstable 60 foot slope was hazardous to nearby residences and needed to be mitigated.  Rocks ranging from 10 lbs to 4000 lbs were falling due to unfavorable slope conditions.  First, we cleared and grubbed the entire slope, then we set up a temporary rockfall barrier system to protect the road while we were rock scaling.  After we scaled all the loose rock, we drilled and installed 21-11 foot deep rock dowels.  The last step was to drape 6,200 sq ft of  TECCO wire mesh.
