Kentucky Division of Abandoned Mine Lands – Switchback Slides – Johnson County

ABOUT THIS PROJECT


Jigsaw was responsible for the design and layout for the removal and stabilization of a large slide from a previous mining operation.  This project removed 100,000 cubic yards of material from the downslope and approximately 150,000 cubic yards from above the slide areas to prevent future slides from occurring.  Project parameters required close working relationships with the public, improving the overall environmental impacts of the area, and improving homeowner and public safety.
