The focus of this guide is on the planning, construction, and maintenance practices for resource roads that cross wetlands. Poor bearing capacity soils and an abundance of water are characteristic of wetlands. This guide focuses on two primary issues: 1. Ensuring that resource roads that cross wetlands function at the required design and performance levels to allow forest access and hauling operations in a cost-effective manner; 2. Reducing the impacts of resource roads on the flow characteristics of wetlands. This guide involves FPInnovations and Ducks Unlimited Canada.
