Ski Park Road East repairs

What's happening

Work to repair a 100-foot section of Ski Park Road East was completed Oct. 29. The road and road shoulder were damaged by a small landslide in Spring 2017 (see photo).


The repair area began approximately two miles north of the road’s intersection with State Route 161 (Lot 92/38914 Ski Park Road E).

Background

The 2017 landslide impacted the outside edge of the road. The shoulder of the road sank several feet and the asphalt cracked and slid down with the soils. Plastic sheeting was placed at the site to prevent further erosion.


We worked with a geotechnical engineering firm in late 2019 and early 2020 to develop the repair plan.

Preparation work

Initial paving work on a 4,100-foot section of Ski Park Road East was completed Aug. 31. The work area started about 1.64 miles north of the road’s intersection with State Route 161. The paving work was in preparation for the October repair work.


Crews smoothed out the bumps in the road with an initial layer of asphalt (see photos below). This work helped the road surface support heavy equipment during the slide repair. 


Crews reshaped ditches and road shoulders Aug. 13-19.
