Barajas and Associates (BAI) were contracted through the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (USACE), to repair approximately 8 miles of two-wheel drive high clearance vehicle roadway for Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Southern Nevada. The purpose of the project was to eliminate alternative routes in order to protect the sensitive environment while improving public access to enjoy the unique environment. The existing roadway suffered from water erosion issues and damage from use, it was poorly marked, and critical habitat for an endangered species was being damaged from off-road vehicles.
