Results are presented of 14 test pits made adjacent to the line of Section E002, on U Street and 14th Street N.W. in Northwest Washington, D.C., of the Washington Metropolitan Area Metro System. The purpose of the work was to provide information on the characteristics of existing building foundations for the design of underpinning or building protection in preparation for excavation of the subway in the streets. The report contains sketches illustrating the test pits, results of laboratory tests on hand-cut undisturbed samples, and a discussion of the general subsurface and foundation conditions.
