Rainbow Rock Hwy 101 Demo

In 2018 Curry SWCD and ODOT partnered to see what it takes to clear and manage gorse on slopes too steep for traditional equipment or work crews. Through their existing contract with rockfall mitigation and scaling contractor, Triptych Construction, LLC, ODOT was able to utilize their rappelers and herbicide applicators to conduct a demonstration of gorse clearing with accompanying cut-stump application of herbicide. The video below captures the effort.
