Document Description
The Project involves the Installation of devices to mitigate potential rockfall from the hillsides immediately adjacent to Pebbly Beach Road, including K-rail along the roadway and installation of rockfall draperies on the hillsides. In general, area with rockfall "chutes" will be protected with engineered rockfall barriers. The strength and size of each barrier is dependent on the steepness of the slope and the size of potential boulders. Areas of projecting rock outcroppings will be covered using rockfall draperies. These draperies are made of wire mesh of varying strengths and design depending on the size and nature of the rock slope. In either case, the existing K-rail would be left in place at the base of slopes and extended to include other areas.
