    Underground Specialties was awarded the 2011 Award of Construction Excellence from the Windsor Construction Association for their McDougall Avenue Road Rehab IV project. After assisting the City of Windsor with the design, over 200 of our Limestone Blocks were used to assemble this beautiful wall. Dunn Paving was the contractor.

    Designed and built by Rollie Schraepfer, this has been a multi year project with Ivey Construction, (Mineral Point, WI) pouring all 1600+ blocks in the wall.

    The main wall stretches about 300 ft and stands 16 ft tall.

    Each block weighs roughly 2000 lbs and sits on solid concrete footing.

    When finished, this project integrates 8 walls, made from over 100 semi loads of blocks.

    When building walls of this size, it’s crucial that each block is true and fits squarely with the others.
