Slope Stability is a major problem faced during the construction and maintenance of highways. Anytime a highway (or other construction project) cuts into existing ground it disturbs the mechanics of the surrounding area. In its worst state the result may be landslides and rock falls that jeopardize construction projects and result in substantial rehabilitation costs.
