I am working on a project that has a split barrier in the median. The difference in elevation is about 3 ft. The barrier I am planning tu use is a rigid retaining barrier 2' -8" with footing. The contractor wants to reduce cost but his suggestion is to use Half Wall Barriers without footing. I would like to get some calculations of how this is possible. Thanks for any help
