Abstract
Geosynthetic reinforcement was evaluated in a road that crossed a muskeg bog. Three options were tested: geogrid, reinforced non-woven geotextile, and corduroy (delimed trees laid side by side). After 1 year, the three road segments provided similar performance. Geosynthetics were less expensive than corduroy if the stems used in the latter approach could have generated a net profit of greater than $/m3. Geosynnthetics are easy to install, require no additional equipment during the installation, and avoid fiber loss.

Abstract
Resource extraction companies in western Canada share the same road networks and, as such, frequently must construct road crossings of buried pipelines. Regulations require that construction within the pipeline right-of-way be approved and supervised by the pipeline owner, and be positively located prior to construction. The form of crossing, however, is not well defined and requirements vary between pipeline companies and, even, between construction supervisors working for the same pipeline company. Delays in receiving crossing permits, scheduling difficulties with arranging for pipeline locating and for pipeline representatives to be on site for the construction, and varying and ill- defined construction requirements are challenges for both forestry and oil and gas companies that must cross buried pipelines.
