The observed snow storage was found to be 16.6 t/m at Lamberton. The storage capacity of this fence design is 30.5 t/m; therefore this design captured roughly 55% of capacity for the 2000-01 season.

The calculated setback distance of 155 ft is 5 ft greater than the actual setback of 150 ft. However, no problems occurred at this site because snow deposition did not encroach on the roadway.
