Abstract
In this study, FPInnovations observed and documented the use of a geogrid and woven geotextile as a culvert foundation improvement method on a resource road built in Ontario. Following the installation, annual culvert elevation surveys and culvert end angle measurements have been conducted by FPInnovations as a means in which to evaluate the effectiveness of the foundation improvement method. Following three years of re-measurements, the use of the geogrid and woven geotextile have not shown to improve the culvert foundations at this site. FPInnovations will continue to monitor the site and will use the knowledge gained to provide recommendations for culvert foundation improvement designs.
