Rock Construction Entrance

Rock construction entrance to the Groco stockpile. It is properly installed over geotextile fabric and is 100 feet long. Even so, there is obviously material on the tires the full length, onto a gravel section then onto concrete road surface, then another 250 feet. Nothing got onto the public road and all was swept up.

Still, the best way to deal with trackout is to find ways to keep tires clean. If the delivery trucks had stayed on the rock to dump, and if the loader had moved the compost from where the truck dumped, there would be no trackout.
