PROJECT NAME: OR35 at MP 63.72
STIP ID NUMBER: 20452
MILE POINT: 63.72
ISSUE: The existing catchment at the base of this slope is minimal to non-existent, and there is only a narrow shoulder. Rocks frequently roll down the steepened slope and impact the travel lane.
PURPOSE AND NEED: Rockfall impacts traveler safety, travel time, and transportation system operations. Small rockfall have closed the highway for a portion of a day. Large rockfall can result in an extended closure.
PROPOSED SOLUTION: Scale slope and install draped mesh to control slope raveling
TOTAL COST: $736,392
