Mt. Union Borough Council, Huntingdon County
This project included removing failing and collapsed stone masonry retaining walls and construction of new retaining walls to support a two-block section of the southern lane of Pennsylvania Avenue. In their place, galvanized steel walls with reinforced concrete facing were designed and constructed. The walls, located between Franklin and Jefferson Streets, total more than 1,000’ long and have a maximum height of 10’.
To match the context of the Mount Union Historic District and the adjacent East Broad Top Railroad National Historic Landmark, the walls include concrete form liners, were stained to match the appearance of the original walls and display a black coated traffic barrier which aesthetically blends with the railroad and neighborhood setting.
