Reinforced Earth® retaining walls are gravity structures consisting of alternating layers of granular backfill and reinforcing strips with a modular precast concrete facing. They are used extensively in transportation and other civil engineering applications. Because of its high load-carrying capacity, Reinforced Earth is ideal for very high or heavy-loaded retaining walls.

Blondo Street Soundwall, NE
