Re: Making a logging road.. Geo material use?
Exactly... And material could either be moved out to make a nice taperd slope on the down side, or taken to fill in a lower area. It all depends on how much room you have to work with. The angle of incline on a road on a hill makes a difference too. The steeper, the more likely it will wash large ruts. Some water bars help cut cross ways at an angle to get the water off asap helps too, and not washing further down the hill. A slight bump from a water cut off, is much better than dodging/repairing washout ruts, in my opinion.
That outside edge built from the fill will get pretty mushy when it's wet, and will be that way for a while. If it happens to give way, the dirt laying on that slope, unless benched, or stair stepped, and compacted will slide, and you with it. Then there will be ruts, and fill with water, and only worsen the problem.
A road is no better than the base it is built on.
