Abstract:Weyerhaeuser Company and Westvaco Corporation combine to discuss haul road construction in mountainous terrain of Arkansas and West Virginia. Road design, adoption of standards, construction techniques--these and other components are found to be equally important in building cost-effective roads that are environmentally acceptable. Costs range from $5,000 to $35,000 per mile of completed road, depending on steepness and difficulty of terrain.
