Highway 11 and Victor Road Interchange
Location: Saskatoon, SK
The underlying soil in the area is soft clay, making settlement and pore pressure dissipation a major design consideration. Wick drains were installed in the clay soil prior to embankment construction. The entire embankment and ramps within 300 m of the structure were built with granular soil. The MSE walls at the abutments are 2-stage walls, with wire mesh baskets installed first followed by a settlement period, then concrete facing panels installed in the typical brick pattern. There was 113,000 m3 of granular imported and installed in the roadway embankments.
