1998 Projects

These are the projects that we did in the year 1998. The projects are categorized by the year that we started the contract. If you are looking for a project that you thought might have been done in this year, check the year before and it could have been started then. A lot of our projects can last for more than a year and we also start projects towards the end of the year and they do carry over. Enjoy the projects descriptions and pictures. Since this is a new website we are still continuing to add pictures from past projects once we have scanned them to add them to the site. So if a project you are looking for doesn't have any pictures come back later to see if they have been added. Leave us a comment, in our Contact section of this site, about a project you would like to see pictures of and we will try to do those first.

Again, a gravely tractor was used to construct most of the tread way. The work involved clearing, grubbing, and removal of hazard trees, rock waterbars, stone steps, and excavation. The resulting trail is now one of the premier trails in the George Washington and Jefferson National Forest.
