Results are summarized of six supplementary borings made along the line of Section G002 of Addison Route, of the Washington Metropolitan Area Metro system, generally on East Capital Street between its intersection with Benning Road and a point just east of the District of Columbia boundary. The investigation was made to determine additional details of subsurface conditions at the planned earth tunnels, the ancillary structures and for Capital Heights Station at the east end of G002. The report contains a continuous geological section along the centerline of outbound track, logs of the supplementary borings, results of laboratory tests on soil samples obtained and conclusions regarding anticipated design and construction problems.
