This program will address the latest innovative solutions for using Segmental Retaining Walls (SRWs) to address challenging site access conditions. The presentation reviews the characteristics of gravity wall and reinforced wall systems and introduces a new solution for utilizing SRWs in conditions where room for reinforcement is not available. The use of structural backfill and newly developed aesthetic facing systems can be used to create gravity wall structures. Installation details, the proper construction sequence, and specifications are also addressed.
