Pikes Peak Highway Revegetation and Restoration of Wildlife Habitat

Pikes Peak, El Paso and Teller Counties, Colorado

The Pikes Peak Highway (PPH) administration and U.S. Forest Service needed to pave and install erosion control structures from 11,500 ft to the summit of Pikes Peak (14,110 ft). This stretch is the last seven miles of the highway, and runs from Glen Cove to the summit.

We completed a comprehensive, 40-page Elements of Restoration Plan for the disturbances associated with this roadway improvement project. The plan included re-vegetating both sub-alpine and alpine regions along the highway and creating alpine and sub-alpine wildlife habitats with sustainable native species. We then  provided inspection during construction and prepared monitoring reports for the following 3 years.

This challenging location has been successfully re-vegetated and restored to its natural beauty! We are proud to have been part of this effort!
