The project site was located approximately 6km east of Hinton, Alberta on the north side of Highway 16. The project consisted of constructing two retaining walls to mitigate a surficial geohazard from impacting the safe day to day operation of an existing rail line. The rail line was operational and is integral to the material transport process.
