More About Reinforced Earth in the Central US:
RECo’s first retaining wall in Texas – built in the late 1970’s – was a Reinforced Earth® MSE abutment on Congress Avenue Bridge in Austin. The bridge is famous for housing the world’s largest urban bat colony. Since then, we have engineered and supplied walls, sound barrier, arches, and other precast products for hundreds of locations throughout the region, includnig the vast network of highways surrounding the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The largest of which was for the North Tarrant Express, a record setting project in the United States at the time. More recently, we have completed work for TEXRail and the I-35E TEXpress Lanes between Dallas and Denton.
Our Central Region’s office is known for perfecting our process for custom architectural finishes and murals on our precast concrete retaining walls. Many of the walls in the region feature murals and other artwork cast with custom formliners. The practice has evolved and since spread to our projects in all parts of the United States.
