Concrete Cloth™: Swale Construction

Project Overview

A cell phone tower company has a tower site at the top of a steep hill in a remote location in Eastern Tennessee. As the hill has grades as steep as 2 on 1, and averaging 3 on 1, a roughened concrete road was installed for traction to perform periodic tower maintenance. A concrete-lined ditch had been installed on one side of the access road. While the cross slope on the access road directed most of the water into this concrete ditch, some water still ran along the opposite side of the road from the nearby shoulder.

This water created a drop-off along the access road that was threatening the
integrity of the road itself. Water had begun to undermine the access road’s
concrete surface and the drop-off itself was becoming a hazard. This erosion had to be arrested and future stormwater controlled before it compromised the access road entirely.
