Denali National Park Landslide Mitigation

See all Projects

Project Description

The National Park Service required landslide mitigation along the primary access road within Denali National Park. The project sites were located along steep slopes unsuitable for conventional drilling equipment.  A major concern for the Park Service was to minimize the environmental impact to the tundra.

Team Members

National Park Service, Crux Subsurface, Quanta Subsurface

Crux’s Role

Crux worked closely with the Park Service and Western Federal Lands staff to minimize impact to the ecosystem and prevent tour bus delays. Crux provided limited-access drilling services for landslide mitigation and completed drilling at several difficult-access, steep-slope locations.

To meet the Park Service’s requirements, Crux built custom work platforms and utilized equipment capable of setting up on tundra slopes without excavation.
