Light weight pumice backfill material behind AIL Precast Panel Wall Golden Ears Bridge completed

The Golden Ears Bridge crosses the Fraser River and establishes a vital corridor between Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Surrey and Langley via a connecting 14 km road system.

AIL’s Precast Panel walls with a custom eagle motif.Proven retaining wall expertise and product performance led to AIL and Vist-A-Walls being selected for this project. Both Wire Walls and Precast Panel Walls were used, with the latter including a custom-cast Eagle motif.

One unique challenge was the low bearing capacity of the soft foundation soils which required the use of lighter weight pumice and river sand as backfill materials.
