47th BCT Wilderness Road
Client:  USACE, Omaha District
Location: Fort Carson, Colorado
Capacity:  $6.1M

The 47th Brigade Combat Team (BCT) Wilderness Road project involved the construction of a new roundabout intersection, two miles of four-lane asphalt roadway with concrete curbs and gutters, and two tank trails. One tank trail was made of aggregate gravel, and the other was roller-compacted concrete. The project originally called for a super curve in the trail, but after the Tepa EC team raised concerns about the drainage and quality of the runoff water, the client approved additional erosion control measures, including a larger aggregate shoulder and rip-rap ditches.

The Tepa EC team also performed these tasks:

  • Installation of drainage
  • Construction of the culvert
  • Relocation of existing utilities (electric, gas, water)
  • Installation of patterned, colored concrete
