The Locks

Manayunk, PA
Retaining Wall, Design, Planting and Community Trail

The Locks / Venice Island project was a strategic partnership with D3 Construction to construct a community along the Schuylkill River Canal in Manayunk, PA.

Shearon’s work centered around a 24,000 sq ft retaining wall on the canal side.  Shearon valued engineered the existing landscape plans to ensure all erosion control measures were taken into account.  The 400 linear foot by 6 foot tall wall was constructed of marine grade concrete and precast concrete wall blocks.  For flood mitigation Shearon designed and built a super silt fence and supplied and installed all landscaping including the community trail along the river bank.
