Southwoods Road Project

"On August 22nd, 2018, the Potter County Conservation District completed an intensive slope stabilization project on Southwoods Road in Sylvania Township. The site had developed into not only an unfavorable driving surface and a safety hazard, but the source of sediment loading down a steep valley to the Southwoods Branch Creek. 

In 2017, a 100 foot mudsill crib and 3 multi-log vanes were placed to stabilize the toe of slope. This year, work sought to stabilize a 50 foot tall and 100 foot long erosion scarp. The site was in desperate need of work to save the road itself, and called for the professional work of GeoStabilization International (GSI), a contractor specializing in emergency landslide repairs, rockfall mitigation, and grouting. GSI's team employed the use soil nails and cementation. To improve drainage, fresh Limestone was placed by Bart Ianson / Ianson Farms, and a guide rail was placed at the cemented bank by Green Acres, LLC."
