FEMA Mobile Home Park
The record-breaking flooding in North Dakota in June of 2011 left a trail of devastation including the destruction of thousands of homes. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has set us multiple mobile home Parks in North Dakota to house 4,600 displaced North Dakota citizens. Minot is the home to the Virgil Workman Village and over 200 of these mobile homes. The Army Corp of Engineers, along with FEMA officials, needed a way to provide stable, wheelchair accessible sidewalks to the trailers from the designated parking spots. USACE and FEMA chose Gravelpave2. Gravelpave2 installed quickly even in the frigid North Dakota winter. The 7800 m2 (84,000 sq ft) of Gravelpave2 was placed and installed, on two separate dates, in matter of hours. Gravelpave2 will also mitigate erosion problems and future stormwater runoff issues.

The rings and fabric of the Gravelpave2 are partially exposed on this installation. A bit of brooming or raking of the gravel would easily repair this.
