Lean, Innovative, and Unique Project Solutions

During the inspections, traversing through the right-of-way was extremely difficult, because most areas had not been improved upon in many years so the undergrowth was thick. The rough travel required walking by foot or the use of ATV’s. It was crucial to communicate between inspection teams to ensure preparedness for the emergencies in the wilderness.
