4DM to conduct a Snowdrifting Assessment on Highway 11, South of Powassan, Ontario.

AECOM has selected 4DM to provide snowdrifting analysis and mitigation services as part of the Ontario Ministry of Transportation assignment to develop a new interchange along Highway 11 at south entrance to Powassan, Ontario Canada. The study area is prone to snowfall and there are public concerns related to hazards associated with drifting and blowing snow in the area. The project will involve a number of tasks including meteorological analysis, snow transport modelling using 4DM’s SnowStream2D model, and cost-benefit analysis of different treatment solutions. Finally, 4DM will recommend a strategy to AECOM and MTO that will reduce winter maintenance costs and safeguard motorists along this stretch of highway and its associated road improvements.
