The supplier may be contacting districts and asking to be included on upcoming projects. These systems are expected to perform acceptably and should be considered for inclusion on projects.

over 50,000 square feet of MSE wall,
walls over 25 feet tall, or
walls supporting or immediately adjacent to interstate highways.
