Project Description

N Willamette Retaining Wall existing condition

The existing structure will be replaced by a retaining wall supported on deep foundations, designed for resilience to earthquakes and landslides. Concurrent with the retaining wall work, we will also make pedestrian and safety improvements to the existing retaining walls in the project vicinity. Additionally, the Portland Water Bureau will be on site to replace a section of its 100 year-old water line in the area and relocate it further away from the steep slope.
