Document Description
The existing retaining wall along Alta Vista Way supports the roadway and is beginning to show signs of decay and movement. Therefore, it has been determined that the existing wall has reached the end of its useful life and should be replaced. The City has determined the construction of a new retaining wall (a secant pile wall) adjacent to the existing retaining wall to be the best replacement option. The proposed project would install a secant pile retaining wall within the street, approximately where the existing curb and gutter is situated. The existing timber retaining wall would be protected-in-place and no modifications to the retaining wall would occur. Upon completion of the proposed project, the roadway, curb, and gutter would be restored to pre-project conditions.
