Retaining wall sends timbers down the river

Verti-Crete, LLC, Sandy, UT, 84091, USA

Set alongside the scenic Raisin River, Comstock Park in Adrian, Michigan, is a popular recreation spot for residents. Its stunning water fountains and lush flower gardens provide a beautiful entry into Adrian’s downtown. A failing retaining wall along the banks of the river within the park, however, had not only become an eyesore but also a safety hazard for the city. Built in 1974, the roughly 470-foot-long timber-and-steel-beam wall was deteriorating: the wood planks were beginning to rot, and the wall was tipping. City officials knew it was time to find a solution for this unique retaining wall—which is constantly in contact with water—in Comstock Park.
