Hayward Baker Constructs Temporary Emergency Earth Retention for Landslide Repairs Near Train Tracks in Baltimore

View of failed Baltimore retaining wall before soldier pile wall construction

Hayward Baker was among the contractors called in for emergency repairs to a failed retaining wall in Baltimore that destabilized a slope, causing a landslide that enveloped cars and threatened a railroad track below. The final episode of the slope failure was caught on video and showed several cars being swallowed. GeoPrac sponsor, Hayward Baker is currently on-site installing a temporary soldier pile lagging wall with tiebacks to facilitate the construction of a permanent wall. They are anticipating to have the temporary wall complete in August. [Source: Read more about the project at Haywardbaker.com. Image: Hayward Baker]
