More About Reinforced Earth in the Southwest:
RECo’s first project in the United States is located in southern California. Our small team of engineers in the early 1970’s worked with Caltrans to deliver a newly introduced MSE wall solution for the repair of a landslide.
Mechanically stabilized earth retaining walls are an ideal solution in this region due to their ability to withstand high seismic loads. One example – the BART Warm Springs Extension in Fresno, California – includes a railway bridge abutment footing supported by an MSE wall directly above a fault line.
Our southwest office has also tackled transportation infrastructure mega-projects such as Project Neon in Las Vegas and South Mountain Freeway in Phoenix, which are both record setting projects for their respective Nevada and Arizona DOT’s, respectively.
