J10 Soil Boring Access Project

April–June 2018 in Western Massachusetts Riggs Distler
J10 Soil Boring 2

Results Delivered

Thanks to our General Foreman’s extensive experience, Riggs Distler was able to make short work of some of the worst road-building conditions our team has ever encountered. We used off-road equipment, excavators, large articulating dumps, and forwarders to haul in and install approximately 4,800 tons of material to make the steep, muddy conditions accessible. To navigate the ledge, our team hammered our passes to allow the road to continue.

Ultimately, Riggs Distler’s team was able to beat the accelerated project schedule, completing the road and securing access to the client’s infrastructure in time for them to perform assessments before the scheduled upgrades, all while protecting the surrounding environment. A large portion of the access road was made permanent, allowing access for the client to perform future maintenance and repairs on the line whenever necessary.
