Snowdrift Model and Mitigation for Highway 7 West of Carleton Place

4DM was subcontracted by the IBI Group on behalf of Ontario Ministry of Transportation to provide meteorological, snowdrift modeling and mitigation analysis to assess the severity of snow transport across section of Highway 7 near Carleton Place. 2D snow transport modeling was conducted based on return period and mitigation modeling assessed the snow fence requirements based on snow flux. The modeling considers the size, setup back, porosity, height and orientation. Oblique snow fencing was installed as outcome of the project.
