MONITORING A CRIBLOCK RETAINING WALL. FINAL REPORT

Two criblock retaining walls were constructed on both ends of a bridge on Project BRO 0057(2) on County Road 17 in Pitkin County in Western Colorado. This study was initiated to evaluate the post-construction performance of this proprietary retaining wall system. The walls were completed during March 1989, and their movements were monitored through July 1990. The results of the monitoring program indicated that the wall movements were limited to less than 3/4 of an inch during the 17 month monitoring period, and the walls appear to be in satisfactory working condition. The appearance of the criblock retaining walls as well as their durability can make this retaining wall system competitive with the other retaining wall systems when applicable.
