Road Building in Oregon, by necessity, must consider water dynamics. Water must be diverted off and away from a road system to ensure that the road surface holds up to the heavy rain events which frequent Western Oregon, but must be easy for an owner to maintain.
Before Pihl Excavating begins construction of a road system, a closer look is taken as to its layout using a Trimble 3D computer model of the existing terrain with the proposed road. Pihl favors road construction that results in natural and easily maintainable shoulders and slopes as opposed to roads that have overly deep ditches or steep cut banks. We ensure that all criteria are met for local construction codes and fire department regulations.
