Reinforced soil slopes are a common fill structure used in transportation and slope repair projects. Specifications often require virgin fills and robust facing treatments to simplify the designs and make the construction more accessible. A more economical approach can be taken by capitalizing on the flexible nature of reinforced soil slopes and using marginal soils as backfill.
