US 321

Schnabel designed and constructed 15 permanent tieback walls with a total length of over 8,500 ft. for the Tennessee Department of Transportation during the widening of U.S. 321 on the edge of the Smoky Mountain National Park.

The widening of US 321 through several miles of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park just outside of Gatlinburg, TN utilized Permanent Tieback Walls to minimize the impact to the surrounding environment and preserve the beauty of this majestic area. It took a team approach between Schnabel, Blalock and Sons, Inc. and the Tennessee Department of Transportation to construct one of the largest permanent tieback wall projects in the nation.
