Geosynthetic materials can help extend the life of pavement, improve safety and mitigate erosion control. The Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Local Aid Support has published a mobile app that serves as a comprehensive guide to geosynthetics and their applications in highway building and maintenance.
The Geosynthetics Mobile Application provides immediate access to information on using geosynthetics in transportation construction projects. The App also features important information such as specification requirements and a checklist that can be used during on-site inspections of walls, slopes, pavement, and drainage. The mobile app is available at no cost and can be downloaded from either the Apple Store or Google Play Store.
Visit YouTube to see how the mobile app can be used during onsite inspections:
