SUBSURFACE INVESTIGATION, BRANCH ROUTE, 'B' CORRIDOR, STATIONS 178+25 TO 484 (F004 TO F008) AND ARS MEDIAN STATIONS 310 TO 424 (F008)
Results are presented of 87 borings made on two alignments of Branch Route, the "B" Corridor extending south from Anacostia through Congress Heights to a yard at Rosecroft Raceway and Section F008 of ARS Median from Station 310 along the Suitland Parkway median to a yard near Henson Creek, of the Washington Metropolitan Area Metro system. The investigation was made to determine subsurface conditions at the subway locations which consist chiefly of single-track earth tunnels in the "B" Corridor alignment and at-grade construction or aerial structures in ARS Median. The report includes continuous geological sections along the line of the subway in the area of the investigations, logs of the test borings, laboratory test data and conclusions regarding design and construction problems.
