In this rehabilitation of a railroad, 13,064 square yards of NAUE Secugrid® 30/30 Q1 Geogrid was used. The geogrid was used to reduce the amount of aggregate needed as well as to stabilize the soft soils underneath the railroad.
Secugrid® 30/30 Q1 was not originally specified on this job, but the engineer found it to be the best choice because of the high tensile strength at low elongations. The contractor was also drawn to this product because of the ease of use. He liked how the product easily rolls out without having to be staked down. It was also readily available, which made for quick and easy installation.
