Sites with grade separation requirements present a number of challenges with an even greater number of potential solutions. Confined construction footprints, limited access, seismic and settlement activity, environmental restrictions and more – all pose significant design, construction and budgetary demands on owners, developers, engineers and contractors. Systems such as retaining walls or reinforced soil slopes offer a solution to each unique application that might present itself.
Conventional solutions including cast-in-place concrete walls and sunken pilings can be costly, difficult to stage, time-consuming and labor-intensive. GeoSolutions offers proven, versatile and cost-effective solutions for a variety of grade separation applications. Proper design and execution of the correctly selected grade separation solution provides an opportunity to confidently build infrastructure on or near major changes in elevation.
