Blue Earth County initially used cast-in-place large chiseled blocks for multiple soil nail walls along Highway 66 in Mankato. The shoring contractor engaged Boulderscape to explore the feasibility of replicating these blocks. After thorough discussions, it was determined feasible. On-site mock-ups were created and approved. Boulderscape not only shortened the overall duration of the wall construction but also saved the owners over $200,000.
