John E. Amos Soil Nail Walls

John E. Amos Soil Nail Walls Overview

Winfield, WV

Providing geotechnical investigations along with design and construction oversight, GAI aided in the development of the North Valley combustion residual disposal site at the John E. Amos Landfill. Two soil nail walls were constructed on each side of the valley creating a widened area for landfill activities, reducing earth disturbance and excavation volume, and stabilizing the steep cut slopes in the soil and weak rock. With a surface area of approximately 60,000 square feet, the North Soil Nail Wall is approximately 1,075 feet long with a maximum exposed height of 74 feet. Furthermore, the South Soil Nail Wall is approximately 380 feet long with a maximum exposed height of 41 feet, and has a surface area of approximately 12,000 square feet.
