A corrugated steel bin retaining wall supporting the Trans-Canada Highway #1 was at the end of its service life and sited many structural concerns. The wall is scheduled for replacement during the upcoming Phase 4 of the Kicking Horse Canyon Project. However, the condition of the wall and importance of the highway corridor dictated that it be maintained in a structurally acceptable condition to ensure the safety of highway users. Morrison Hershfield’s innovative solution provided a temporary repair to extend the service life of the wall for another five to ten years.
This session was initially presented at the 2020 TAC Conference.
