Prepared by the Highway Innovative Technology Evaluation Center (HITEC), a CERF/IIEC Innovation Center.

This report describes a HITEC evaluation designed to determine the basic capabilities and limitations of the INTER-LOK System for use as a technically viable, precast mechanically stabilized earth retaining wall system. The evaluation was conducted based on design, construction, performance, and quality assurance information outlined in the HITEC Protocol. The INTER-LOK System features a cross-shaped, segmental precast concrete facing panel connected to metallic rebar and anchor plate type of soil reinforcement attached to the facing panels by a keyplate that interlocks with the facing panels.
