Camels Back Chute Stabilization

Winspear Construction built 4 large rock retaining walls, 60 10-foot stone stair treads, a new hand rail, drainage, and extensive regrading and finish work.

The City of Boise contracted with Winspear Construction to design a solution to mitigate heavy erosion in a public-use area. This project required a Performance and Payment Bond and occurred on one of the most iconic hills in Boise-the Camel’s Back. At the forefront of the project was a plan for safety as large-scale excavation and heavy equipment operation was needed to complete the work on this project. Miles of trails in this public area were shut down in order to accommodate the building of an access road. The work took place on a slope of over 45 degrees.

Winspear Construction built 4 large rock retaining walls, 60 10-foot stone stair treads, a new hand rail, drainage, and extensive regrading and finish work.

Winspear Construction operated a Cat 323 Excavator, D6 Dozer, 12,000 lb. All Terrain Telescopic Forklift, and a Cat Tracked Skidsteer to complete this project.
