Background

Areas of Ryder Lake including Elk View Road, Ryder Lake Road, and Thorton Road have been subject to roadway settlement. For a number of years, the City has engaged geotechnical engineers to prioritize, design and review hillside stabilization measures in order to repair and reduce the risk of further damage to these roadways. This work is coordinated with the asphalt rehabilitation program and can consist of sierrascape walls, micropiles, grade beams, deadmen, rock scaling, shotcrete, riprap and drainage improvements followed by re-paving.
