Roads

Standards and Use

The need for higher standard roads can be alleviated through better road-use management.


Temporary low-standard roads are designed for short-term minimal use during timber harvesting. They can be constructed, used, and reclaimed during seasons when precipitation and erosion potential is minimal.


When stream crossings are needed, portable bridges can be used. These temporary bridges are quick, economical, and can be installed with less impact than other alternatives.
