SouthEast Connector Project Implements Deep Soil Mixing Technique

Dear Stakeholder:

Granite Construction has partnered with Condon Johnson and Associates, Inc. to perform deep soil mixing operations beginning the week of April 11, 2016. Deep soil mixing is a technique that improves the stability of weak soils by injecting a blend of cement and water into the ground and mixing it with the soil to form underground columns which provide a stable foundation to build the road upon.

“We are excited to have Condon Johnson as part of our team, said Brian Roll, Granite Construction Project Manager. The technique [deep soil mixing] is not only environmentally and economically friendly, but also new to our area.”

By using the existing soils on site, the necessary import of raw materials is reduced.

Deep soil mixing operations will begin at the Rosewood Lakes Drainage Structure site where approximately 450 columns will be formed. Once completed and design strength is reached, construction of the bridge structure can begin.

Controlled Burns on SouthEast Connector Project – The SouthEast Connector team and the Reno Fire Department are conducting a series of small, controlled burns between Alexander Lake Road and South Meadows Parkway in an effort to remove whitetop. Contained burning will rejuvenate growth and survival of native plants and animals by restoring essential nutrients. The burns are also acting as training for the Fire Department as whitetop can be difficult to burn.
