Extra Stabilization Measures Taken to Build the Haul Road through Rosewood Lakes


A second layer of geotextile fabric is placed on top of stabilization rock for the haul road in Rosewood Lakes Golf Course.

Dear Stakeholder:

Geotextile woven fabrics are being used to construct the haul road through Rosewood Lakes Golf Course due to poor soil conditions. These permeable fabrics allow surface water to flow through gravel and stabilization rock to the soil beneath while at the same time providing strength to subgrade soil.

Soil through Rosewood Lakes is incredibly unstable, so the SouthEast Connector project team is building the haul road through the area using two layers of the geotextile fabric. A first layer of fabric is placed on top of the original soil, then a layer of stabilization rock, another layer of fabric and finally the remaining haul road material that is cemented and treated and finished with Aggregate Base and recycled AC Pavement grinding from previously reconstructed roadways.

The double application of geotextile fabrics increases safety and prevents rutting in the road and wear and tear on construction equipment.

Stakeholder updates will be distributed weekly, and as construction operations progress.
