Bear (bare??? in mind that what's behind that wall is a cliff. My 'yard' is six or seven feet above the wall. It won't be a deterrent from crashes into my yard, and it won't be a sound barrier.
Well then, you obviously need a force field. Where's Spock when you need him?

I would venture to say that they will be putting in a french drain in behind the wall, then back-fill with existing or new soil. to level the grade on your side of the wall.

When I went to bed Wednesday night this is what my retaining wall looked like - they had started on the corner:

Road widening 8 3 22

When I got up this a.m. this is what it looks like - MAN! those guys work fast!!:

After the cement cures they'll start brining back the dirt to fill behind the wall. When they built the small retaining wall along my new driveway they filled the space behind the wall with landscape cloth and rocks. It will be interesting to see what they do with this large space.
