Project : INTERSTATE 76 ATWOOD – STERLING
Client : Castle Rock Construction
Location : Sterling, Colorado

This project spanned for 10 miles between the towns of Atwood and Sterling. The entire north side, median, and south side of I-76 was treated with over 20,000 yards of compost material applied with 4WD tractors, towing specialized compost spreaders. Soil tillage, drill seeding, straw mulching, and mulch tackifier had to be applied simultaneously. Erosion control blankets were installed on approximately 20 miles of buffer strips and at all bridge abutments. A large fleet of revegetation equipment and crews were utilized to keep up with the scheduling demands of this project that spanned over two (2) years.

Project : PIKES PEAK ALPINE REVEGETATION
Client : City of Colorado Springs Utilities
Location : Colorado Springs, CO

WSRI completed revegetation work in accordance to the Pikes Peak Revegetation Plan designed and engineered by Smith Environmental. The work consisted of transplanting alpine plugs, soil conditioning with organic fertilizer, seeding and mulching, and installation of erosion control devices on slopes varying from 2:1 to 3:1.

Project : BNSF RAILROAD CANADIAN TEXAS
Client : BNSF
Location : Canadian, Texas

Slope grading and reshaping to repair washouts in the slopes along the railroad right of ways occurred on this 40 acre project. WSRI utilized a dozer to cat track some of the slope areas. Seeding was done using a broadcast seeder specially designed for and mounted by WSRI on the dozer. Those slopes were then hydromulched to help prevent further washouts. The remaining areas were drill seeded, hay mulched, crimped, and then tacked. Operators had to maintain contact with a BNSF railroad flagger on a daily basis to safely handle revegetation work and train traffic.
