Oregon Hill Parkway and Retaining Walls – Richmond VA

Description

From the National Park Service’s Discover Our Shared Heritage Travel Itinerary for Richmond: “The Works Progress Administration built the wide drive and stone retaining walls along Oregon Hill Park in the late 1930s, and the city rebuilt these in 2007 after substantial damage from tropical storm Gaston.”

The retaining wall at the location below was completely rebuilt using original stones, according to Corman Construction, the contractor on the project: “Due to the park’s historic nature, the existing stone masonry wall had to be meticulously dismantled stone by stone, cleaned, and reinstalled on a new retaining wall, consisting of a cantilevered concrete design supported by driven H-pile.”
