ROCKFALL MITIGATION STRATEGIES ALONG US 89A IN SCENIC OAK CREEK CANYON, SEDONA, ARIZONA: A PROCESS FOR IMPROVING SAFETY WITHOUT COMPROMISING ENVIRONMENTAL INTEGRITY

In 1991, the ARIZONA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION launched an in-depth program to identify existing and potential geologic hazards along US 89A in Oak Creek Canyon near Sedona, Arizona. The goal was to identify environmentally acceptable means of stabilizing slopes to improve driving safety in the canyon. This paper discusses methods of geotechnical inventory and analysis along with the processes of environmental evaluation of alternative mitigation measures and coordination with the U.S. Forest Service.
