Retaing wall over culvert ppe.

Nine years ago We had widened the Laneway and put up a Retaining Wall over the Ditch entering the Property.. @ That time we used (True 8X8 Timbers) 10' Steel Fence Posts to Support the Fence.. Exploring Avenues to take with the Minimum Expense $$ as Time / Age has shown itself Today on the Retaining Wall ..lol... The Dept. of Highways in our area have done a number of projects , everything from Wire Baskets filled with 4" Rock, Foot Square Interlocking Brick, to Full Sized 2 ft Square Cement Blocks.. The Ditch is 4.5 ft deep in the centre to 13 ft from Roadside to Propertyside.... Have thought of the option of a Poured Concrete wall but Canadian Winters can leave a possible Crack... Thoughts & Opinions Welcome.. Cheers

I'm a fan of dry stack retaining walls made with pre-cast concrete blocks. The proper "engineered" systems install quickly and accommodate ground movement very well. I mostly use Keystone tri plane Compac blocks but there are other brands out there.
