Systems on experimental status have been reviewed and approved by TxDOT, but have not yet constructed walls on TxDOT projects. 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.

Note: TxDOT policy does not allow the use of experimental systems on projects with:

  • over 50,000 square feet of MSE wall,

  • walls over 25 feet tall, or

  • walls supporting or immediately adjacent to interstate highways.
