Today, retaining walls are gaining importance with the developing transportation networks. Different solutions are made in the design of retaining walls according to the land structure and ground condition. Various retrofitting methods are used in damaged retaining walls. Especially in recent years, natural disasters in Turkey have also affected the retaining walls. There may be damage and collapse in the retaining walls during and after the disaster. It is predicted that in the event of a possible collapse in the event of a disaster, loss of life and property may also occur. After the disaster, even if the retaining walls have not collapsed, they are damaged. In this case, collapse may occur in the next disaster due to collapse or environmental vibrations. It is also known that in post-disaster situations, it is vital that the transportation network remains active in order to deliver the necessary aid to the region. For all these reasons, in this study, the concrete lining method, which is one of the retrofitting methods of retaining walls, is mentioned. Thus, the effect of the concrete lining method applied on an exemplary retaining wall on modal parameters has been demonstrated. In this comparative study, it was observed that the stiffness of the retaining wall increased with the concrete lining method. As a result of this study, it is suggested to retrofitting the retaining walls with the concrete lining method, taking into account the state of the wall and environmental factors.
