VEGETATION MANAGEMENT
PRACTICES
Shallow-seated slope failures on roadsides, with their accompanying surface erosion and
soil loss, present a challenge to highway construction and maintenance in Idaho. The
loss of topsoil from these slopes depletes an important natural resource, causes adverse
affects on water quality, increases the need for ditch maintenance and diminishes the
aesthetics of the environment. Regulatory, environmental and economic pressures in the
state are forcing construction crews to pay greater attention to erosion control, slope
stability and sedimentation management. To assist them in their efforts the Idaho
Transportation Department (ITD), NIATT and the Department of Rangeland Ecology and
Management at the University of Idaho began working together to determine the most
successful revegetation techniques for assuring the integrity of the road system and to
provide training for ITD personnel responsible for the design, construction and
