Highland Park Ravine Stabilization


CNM Development

Project Description

Many of the ravines in Highland Park are maintained by the residents that dwell adjacent to them. In this particular project, an existing retaining wall failed at the toe of the slope where the ravine drains into Lake Michigan. FM was contracted to demolish the 300’ concrete structure and incorporate the rubble into the toe of the slope to promote stabilization. Specialty equipment was utilized and winched into position due to the steepness of the terrain.
