Good Hope MTA is a tank training facility at Ft. Benning, Georgia. Throughout the maneuver area there exist numerous named and unnamed streams, intermittent streams, pronounced and poorly defined drainage features. Piedmont Geotechnical Consultants conducted a geotechnical investigation and report to support design of 57 low-water crossings in the maneuver area. The design is intended to accommodate the M1A2, Abrams Main Battle Tank with an estimated traffic volume of 80 tanks per day thru each crossing.

The subsurface exploration and subsequent report provided recommendations for a variety of crossing systems including culverts and crushed stone for the minor crossings and box culverts or cabled concrete “pavements” crossing for the major streams.
