Torrential rains associated with Tropical Storm Gaston caused slope and retaining wall failure at historic Oregon Hill Park, which is on the national and state lists of historic places
Oregon Hill is one of the best examples of an intact working-class Victorian (1837-1901) neighborhood in the United States.
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
Slope was re-established and a 30” drilled shaft curtain wall was installed for further stabilization
Other aesthetic improvements included new, ornamental railings
