By GSE Environmental – Repairing damaged expansion joints in rigid pavements is a costly endeavor. Not only is the cost of the repairs high, but repair projects can go on for miles and shut down vital lanes of traffic important to commuters and local commerce. The primary cause of premature damage is insufficient drainage under rigid pavements. MANAGING EXPANSION JOINTS Expansion joints are partic... »

New Geocomposite Drainage System for Roadways

Roadway integrity can be undermined by poor drainage on the surface and in the subgrade of the road. The new GSE RoaDrain™ geocomposite drainage system has been engineered to provide high compressive strength (> 50,000 psf), a permeability greater than 10x that of drainage stone, and long-term performance under roads and at expansion joints to provide an effective capillary break that stops the... »

Drainage and Filtration Engineering at GeoAmericas 2016

News and Articles

One of the most common needs in infrastructure is proper drainage and filtration engineering. These solutions consolidate soils to accelerate construction windows. They channel liquids into proper retention or detention areas. They guard against soil less and protect waterways. Drainage and filtration engineering impacts landfills, roads, stormwater systems, dams, levees, and many other infrastruc... »
