Ohio DOT Terraseeding Project
Location: Columbia Station, Ohio
Project Site: Interstate 280 near Toledo, Ohio
Project Scope/Challenges: Using an Ohio DOT specification, Air-O-Mulch had 5 weeks to Terraseed 18 acres near and around interstate lanes and ramps. Strategic zones had to be set up as no lane closures were allowed at any time. The seed mix was also specified by ODOT, and the Express Blower trucks were used to inject this mix into the compost which was applied in a 2-inch layer. Additionally, the compost supplier had a 220 mile roundtrip to bring in more product, so the compost was stockpiled onsite. Due to the unpredictable October weather conditions, the stockpiles had to be covered nightly. Within 8 days of Terraseeding® application, germination had begun.
Products Applied: Leaf & Green Waste Compost
Quantities/Distance: 18 acres of roadside application for a total of 4,000 yards of Terraseeded compost.
