Road building is a necessary but often expensive aspect of resource development, both for forest harvesting operations and for the energy industry. In this course we intend to discuss the materials, equipment and skills needed for a technique that can reduce the cost of road building. The goal is to have reliable, cost-effective construction technique that gets the job done in an environmentally good way. Material presented here will describe the concepts, the best practices during stream crossing construction and a few examples of applications of Geotextile Reinforced Soil construction. The course will provide enough background for the participant to adapt the technique to new situations.
