Results are summarized of 59 deep borings made at the locations of running tunnels, two subway stations in rock and various ancillary structures in Section A011 of Rockville Route of the Washington Metropolitan Area Metro system, generally following Wisconsin Avenue between Elm Street and the Capital Beltway in Maryland northwest of the District of Columbia. The investigations include photography in a selected group of borings, special laboratory tests of rock drillability and direct shear characteristics of joint planes in addition to the usual unconfined compression and in-situ water pressure testing of the rock. The report includes a continuous geological section along the line of the running tunnels through the test borings, logs of these borings, results of laboratory tests on soil samples and on rock cores and summaries of the special rock investigations performed by others.
