To lengthen the radius of a curve as well as to smooth out the road alignment a cut was required for Wiley Canyon. To accomplish this without shoring the Stresswall system was selected. Although the wall face is at a 1:12 batter (essentially vertical) random planting areas within the wall face for internal landscaping options were made possible with the large random planting “pockets” in the wall face. Plants included both large flowering bushes as well as vines and ivy.
The counterforts were placed in slots cut into the existing embankment so that no shoring was required as would have been the case for other wall options. Wall cut was utilized for wall fill.
