Haul Roads

Quality Haul Roads for Cleveland, Ohio Construction or Utility Work

What is a haul road? A haul road is a temporary road that is created to allow the movement of workers, equipment, and materials to and from a construction site. In Northeast Ohio, haul roads are frequently needed during large construction projects, mining activities, forestry, and major utility work. A well-constructed haul road is essential to any construction project that must navigate wooded, rocky, unpaved, or otherwise difficult to move through areas.

Factors in Constructing the Ideal Haul Road

Constructing a quality haul road is a lot more difficult than it may seem. Factors that can have a dramatic impact on the usability and longevity of a haul road in Northeast Ohio include:

  • Site Preparation: Before constructing a haul road, the space must be leveled and cleared of all vegetation, trees, rocks, and other debris
  • Grade, Size, and Shape: The steepness, length, width, and direction of the desired haul road are important design factors
  • Surface Quality: Haul roads can be made from a variety of different materials (e.g., asphalt, gravel, soil, etc.), each with their own pros and cons
  • Drainage and Soil Quality: Proper soil drainage is needed so that the haul road does not flood or contaminate nearby water sources with construction run-off. Similarly, if a haul road is not paved, the design must consider ways to minimize the formation of dust clouds that can impair visibility and endanger peoples’ health

Why Quality Haul Roads are a Worthwhile Investment

The importance of a well designed and constructed haul road to any construction, mining, or forestry project in Northeast Ohio cannot be overstated. It has been estimated that a poorly constructed haul road will ultimately cost ten times that of a well-constructed haul road in maintenance costs alone! Haul road problems such as pot holes, rutting, heavy run-off, loose surface materials, slippery road surfaces, and drainage problems can be safety hazards and can significantly delay construction projects. Because of this, it is well worth investing in a professional Cleveland-area haul road construction company who can get the job done right the first time.
